Fishermen over in Europe and devoted U.S. pay-lake anglers have been blending their own special carp baits and chum in the kitchen for decades. A veteran pay-lake pro handed down this secret recipe to me, and it’s his go-to late-summer mix for everything from common carp to koi and buffalo carp. It’s a salty-sweet cherry concoction these fish can’t resist, with a little alcoholic kick on the back end.
Koi Carp Tonal Study by Dorothy Berry-Lound. Koi Carp are known to be bright and colourful but when you strip away the colour you can see their form. You can clearly see that they are descendants of the common carp. #printsforsale
Koi or more specifically Nishikigoi (brocaded carp), are ornamental varieties of domesticated common carp (Cyprinus carpio) that are kept for decorative purposes in outdoor koi ponds or water gardens. In Japanese, koi is a homophone for another word that means "affection" or "love"; koi are therefore symbols of love and friendship in Japan.
