Fishing in reservoirs in Cyprus

Cyprus also has its own fresh water supply system, which is the reason for the emergence of solid reservoirs. There are about 20 of them on the island. There are roach, silver bream, perch, carp, catfish, pike perch, tench and bream. Of course, you have to pay for fishing. Depending on your plans, you can purchase a fishing permit for one reservoir, or for all at once, which will cost 2 times more. You are unlikely to meet locals in such places. However, it will almost certainly not be possible to stay alone either, because other tourists (mainly British) and gastro-beaters, who were driven here by the crisis, like to fish in the reservoirs.

Methods of fishing in reservoirs in Cyprus

The main part of the fishermen catches on a feeder and a donk. Sometimes very weighty specimens come across, so the fishing rod should be closely monitored so as not to be dragged away. If you're lucky, you can catch pink carp in this way. You can also try spinning. He, however, requires more serious training and is not very suitable for inexperienced fishermen.
