Angling Times (UK) - - ULTIMATE GUIDE TO 2019 -

CRUCIAN carp are one of our most at­trac­tive species, yet they are be­com­ing in­creas­ingly rare as spec­i­men carp fish­ing grows in pop­u­lar­ity and pure-bred cru­cians are hy­bri­dis­ing with their big­ger cousins.

Over the last few years the An­gling Trust has run the Catch a Crucian com­pe­ti­tion, where awards are pre­sented for a va­ri­ety of crucian-re­lated im­ages.

Last year awards were given for the best over­all crucian photo, the best pic­ture of a ju­nior with a crucian, and the best scenic pic­ture.

So, make sure you de­vote a few days to tar­get­ing cru­cians in spring and sum­mer – they’re a fan­tas­tic species to tar­get while the weather is at its best, and can pro­vide elec­tric sport.
