Sea fishing has improved drastically over the last 30 years it seems.

Coarse Fishing for Carp

Cyprus was an ideal place for those who had never tried coarse fishing or those experienced anglers who's life is bereft without it. The warm sunny climate here is ideal as you don't have to spend endless hours sheltering under an umbrella (although we do recommend a sun parasol!) listening to the drizzle, even though that can be a time when you are the bravest fisherman on the best stretch of water. However in our experience the fish like the sunshine as much as anglers do and so if you want to catch a variety of fish ranging from bass, zander, carp, roach, catfish and many more, we had twenty three well stocked reservoirs before the drought and now the dams are full again, hope that in the fullness of time to have again the same huge variety of healthy unmarked fish for you to catch, photograph and then return to where they are happiest, their dam.

In 1989 the angling world five hour match record was set in Cyprus with 323 Ilb 5 ounces. A total of 177 carp was caught to achieve this record. Festivals were organised by Cyprus Angling Holidays, twice a year.

Course Fishing is available Island wide, however, now you need to be an angler as they no longer jump into your lap.
Some of the better known dams are; (Click for more details)

Greg is no longer operating, but we are actively seeking new offerings.

This is what was;
Limassol area
One to Four + fishers - 60 Euros per adult and 43 Euros per child (11 years and under).
All other areas
Two to three fishers - 70 Euros per adult and 52 Euros per child (11 years and under). 
Four + fishers - 60 Euros per adult and 43 Euros per child  (11 years and under).

This price included transfers, fishing permits, all fishing equipment, water and a packed lunch. The days fishing started at approximately
09.00am and you could fish for as long as you wanted.

 All you needed to bring was yourselves, a hat and some sun cream.

The reason it was more expensive from anywhere but Limassol is because your angling guide for the day had to travel from Limassol to pick you up.

Just to let you know that in the 2005 season they caught (and put back) a 36lb Carp.
 You will not beat that in 2019 ?

We have only had one unhappy angler since 1997, this was a woman in 2007 who was quite upset that she didn't catch enough fish. See her comments on the Cyprus fishing feedback section.

 underwater environment.
It is the responsibility of all of us to be aware
 of the steps we can take to help protect the sea and the fish which live there.

At the risk of upsetting some of you we had an important article on
close shore fishing and dynamite use heree.
This is not just for fishermen but for anyone who cares about the marine environment. Thanks

If you have ever thought about seeing the fish close up in their natural
habitat...check out our Diving and water pages.

And here is Pinkpeace in Cyprus , not a lot about fishing, but we think there should be..
