I meant Google earth not maps 🤦🏻‍♂️ But seriously Holland has water everywhere an carp are also everywhere they have a good stocking system, you will find carp everywhere you look.
Also the local anglers are friendly n helpful. Between the app Google earth and the internet Google,YouTube and Dutch fishing forums you will find what your looking for. Google translate will help too. If your planning to fish some of the bigger venues a eco sounder will be needed as some them venues are stupidly deep an without one your p***ing in the wind.

Like "Dipped" says - it's pretty simple. There's a 'vispas app', downloadable that shows what's public access, club owned or private. There's so much water if anyone wants any specific advice, drop me a DM - no worries & let me know where you intend to fish & what you prefer to fish (geographically & type of water - canal, river, huge lake, small lake etc.).

Most waters contain 20lb'ers and a few 30's. 40s - 50s are the reason a lot of Dutch anglers go to France but they are around. Also the Dutch weigh the fish in kg so a 20kg fish (UK - 44lbs) is a target for many anglers here.

Nice one

Did you just pick a venue when you got there or planned it out beforehand?

Lake? River? Polder / canal?

I'm English but based in The Lowlands almost 30yrs. I doubt that the UK dayticket / syndicate business model would ever take off here (like dropping leads), there are some exceptions (Carplantis etc.) but generally a lot of carp are stocked in channels, meres, canals, rivers by national authorities. This water is often interconnected so they can end up anywhere, a bit different from sticking 10x40's, 50x30's and 100x20's in an 8 acre lake.

I mainly fish rivers and meres and love the mystery of what's in them. Having said that, some clubs will buy a 100 fish or so and stock them if the feeling is that some have died or it's 20-30yrs since fish were last introduced.

Re: Germany. I've fished there on a tourist license which may be an option - I've a mate in Berlin who's had to sit the exams and go to 'classes' for his license. I s'pose it weeds out the knobheads.

Like #21 says, it all depends on the angling association involved in the venue. I believe many English fishermen are after a big common or love to catch an 'old warrior'. We have a rather active stocking policy on a lot of lakes, so there's plenty of 'modern' strains to be caught there, with a balanced mix of commons and mirrors. The waters with a less active stocking policy are inhabited by some very nice older strains, nowadays into 70lb easily. So it really puzzles me too why people would want to pay to catch a fish.

All the clubs have different policies.
Some are very actif, some are not.
There are so many waters in Holland, go and have a try.
30 years ago , english anglers came over reguarly.
But nowadays, most of them go over to France, and pay a lot of money for a weeks fishing...
I understand its much saver to fish for known oversized stocks.
But whats the fun in that...
To be honest, i also did it myself

Can I just say your country has some amazing looking carp! Both commons and mirrors.

Do your organisations / clubs have regular stockings like we do in the UK or are they all older stocked fish that have survived the years.

Some of the fish I see on Instagram and in subsurface are out of this world.

I wouldn't even know where to start in picking a venue for a trip.
