why part 1? it will be more than one part, as i quest to different trips and such :D
and despite the title mentioning Adelaide, the first part isn't at Adelaide, specifically at Goolwa, 100km++ away from the suburb life at Adelaide Metro, and most people come down over here for its infamous cockles
but we're here for carps. quite the game fish this one, though not so for consumption over here in Australia where they dwell in and kick the natives off their places. highly invasive they are, so that the government mentions
"European Carp are an introduced species and are not to be returned to the water alive. "
so it seems. as mentioned, they are, for their high abundance, is rather easy to catch and the ones that quite give the fight. a good 2 pounder can run off with your lines multiple times, and forcing it in may result in unhooking it off (had that with my first carp off the Torrens)
and where we're off to in Goolwa? under the bridge
one heck of a spectacular place to cast your line :D
