SUMMER HOLIDAY TIME

The summer holidays provide the ideal time for a little father and son time. Carp fishing gives the opportunity to combine the joys of fishing and camping. Sleeping out beside a lake on a summer night is a great adventure and a chance to see wildlife close at hand and hear the owls in the still of the night.
