Canadian Adventure
taken but boilies, maize etc would be
available once we got there.
As I understand it, once this project
gets fully off the ground, there will be
all the gear necessary available on
your chosen venue and the UK carp
angler will not have to take any tackle
with him. Logistically of course, taking fishing tackle on aeroplanes can
be a bit of a nightmare, but I’ve got to
say that the Air Canada people up at
Heathrow were very, very helpful;
there was no problem taking the
tackle with us on the short six-hour
It was arranged that we would
meet Jim Grayston of Ontario Tourism
after we landed in Toronto, and sure
enough, Jim was there with a big
smile on his face. Jim would accompany us throughout our week’s stay
in Canada coming with us to each of
the venues in turn. Jim is a bit of an
angler himself, but confessed that he
had never done any carp fishing. I
soon rectified that on our trip and he
caught his first carp ever while fishing with me; a great experience, and a
moment I’m sure will stay with him
Jim called a Niagara air bus to
transport us to our first hotel, the
Sheraton on the Falls. As you might
imagine from its name, it overlooks
the awesome Niagara Falls, and I
include a view from my bedroom wincope with the fast currents, mussels
and gravel beds. But generally our UK
carp gear was seen to be much the
same as what they use over there.
We decided at this point to take our
own fishing tackle with us, although
some tackle was available from the
guides who would see us on the various venues. Likewise with bait –
hookbaits, pop-ups etc should be
