Hi, my name is Raymond. I’m a dedicated carp angler from the Netherlands. When I was 5 years old, I caught my first carp and at an age of 15 I specialised myself in carp fishing.
Carp fishing is the biggest passion I ever had in life and probably will have. It’s my escape from daily life and for that reason I like to retreat myself far from other anglers on public lakes, just to enjoy nature the most.
When I have the possibility I’ll go for an overnight session in my boat or else from the bank. I visit France three of four times a year for longer sessions. Most of my sessions I fish alone but my girlfriend joins me more often lately. It’s a real privilege that we share the same passion.
I like to catch big carp but it’s not my goal. I can enjoy a small carp just as much. Being out there in all freedom, experiencing what nature has for us, is my ultimate drug.
