I really didn't know that. I plead ignorance and that I haven't used them for almost two years now. Plenty of them around these parts though!

Bacon, my advice is to visit the canal a couple of times without tackle, but with a selection of food offerings. Try to feed the carp, without the pressure of having to catch them. If you can see them, you should get some ideas of what they are prepared to eat, or not. I've done this at my local carp waters and quite enjoyed the experience... all the time you're feeding the carp, you're scheming away about your next fishing trip!

You meet all kinds of animal on the riverbank.
