The carp, a story of friendship and sharing, again and again
It all started…
In the mid-2000s, when I met the guy who gave me the carp virus. I was a teenager. He passed on to me his values of sharing, discretion, friendship and passion for this fish.
15 years later I am now on the other side of the Atlantic, in Canada, a land where there are many carps but the locals abandon them for the tastier fish.
One summer evening in 2017 on the Mille Isles River, I met Christian, a simple, straightforward, hard-working and humane man. He sees fishermen with a strange gear stalking a fish called carp. We discuss, sympathize, I show him some basic tricks and by dint of perseverance, he steals his first carp.
The virus is caught! This virus is as much the virus of a friendship as of a passion. One year later, the Team Carpe Aventure was born.
Since 2018, several Quebecers and French people have collaborated with the Team: Benoit, Patrick, and Steeve T. for Quebec and Yvon for France. He wishes to promote this fishing, this species and to create the next generation of tomorrow.
Since 2020, Steeve alias La Vedette and Steven alias BigCarpy have joined the ranks of the Team’s administrators and ambassadors.
Based on the sharing of our passion and our values, this is the beginning of a beautiful story that we will tell on this site as an Ambassador of the CPP but passionate above all…
Team Carpe Aventure
JustOne alias PoissMan
Co-funder and leader
Passionate about carp fishing for more than 15 years. I first practiced multi-species fishing in France before specializing on this species. French, I immigrated to Quebec in 2015 and since then I spend my time exploring this fishery here and pass on my passion to Quebecers. I continue to fish in France every holiday with my family. I invite you to come and discover the magnificent wilderness of the St. Lawrence.
My nickname ”PoissMan”, comes from the word ”jinx” which means bad luck, because when I went to the water’s edge with my mentor, there were always things going on that made fishing very difficult…

Initially a bass and pike fisherman in a kayak, it was chance that made me turn to carp fishing. A meeting at the edge of the water of a group of passionate people, a first fight with this fantastic fish, then a second one and the bite was caught. I appreciate the strategic and active aspect of this fishing while making it possible to chill out with family or friends.
To try it is to adopt it! El Padawan because PoissMan took him under his wing and he became the Padawan of the Jedi Master. Lol!

Fishing carp was really a “must” for me. Since I have been fishing this fabulous fish, my days are always full. As soon as the end of winter arrived, I am ready for another exceptional fishing season. Whether it’s for a surprising start or the size of the catch, every fish is different. I accepted to join this group of talented fishermen for their respect for the fish but above all to help you to know better what is today, for me, a passion.

Hi ! I am Steven the carp bite from Quebec ! There’s nothing better for a week-end than a nice carp fishing session in good company in paradisiac places of Quebec ! Why carp ? Good question ! It’s probably because they are like me plump and bearded with their barbels that I get along so well with it.

Hello! I have been a fisherman for more than 40 years and I discovered the Carp only in 2019. Incredible this possion and this style of fishing! For me nature, camping and fishing at the same time! I’m a fan of all this sport! See you on the banks!
The fishing virus was passed on to me by my father and brother who taught me the basics. For my 10 years, I got my first rod, 2 days later, I made my first carp… a real monster….
2kg66 which gave me the taste of this peach so special, so intoxicating and sometimes so desolate when the hoods are chained! But nothing equals the happiness that can bring a moment at the water’s edge in the company of family or friends!
Passionate about carp since always I fish it for nearly 30 years. Enthusiast of night fishing in the past, I now focus on fast fishing and fish location. I like as much to tackle small local rivers and water bodies as to go to rub against dam lakes cluttered with my zodiac. The main thing is passion and pleasure at the water’s edge. I look forward to it!
Hi, there. Fishing has been my great passion since my early childhood. Seeing the numerous jumps of huge fish that swarmed in the river, I dreamed of having one at the end of the line. But, I had to make do with catfish and yellow perch. It is only a few decades later, in 2011, that I finally discovered the secrets of the carp… I am now part of the Team Carp Adventure team as a editor.
