|do you eat the carp? or just exterminate them?|
I'm Macedonian so i've tried carp before, not that great, but i know some who love the stuff. I just fish it for the sport and humanly dispatch it once caught. Our natives are more important, will post a pic below of an example of one.

They're pretty much considered to be 'Trash Fish' in the U.S. Except for the
genetically engineered sterile Triploid Grass Carp that is used to control
nuisance weeds in recreation lakes.
Do you fish for them like the Match fishing competitions in the U.K.?
i.e. Long rods with light line, chumming, etc.
There are some diehard carp anglers who do follow the methods found in the uk, i just use corn and bread, sometimes weighted or unweighted and does the job.

|I tired a few times to get a carp on the fly and found it extremely hard. If anyone has any techniques post them up.|
I've got a friend who catches carp on fly, i think he makes imitation bread or corn flies to catch carp, not too sure, but i've seen carp eat plastic corn so it can't be too hard.
Below is a pic of my dad with a Golden Perch (Macquaria ambigua) i caught at a dam. Roughly 5kg and 60cm they don't fight that hard when caught from this dam but there are other dams in Aus where they put up a great fight.
They grow up to 20kg but i've rarely seen one go above 10kg, okay eating when they're smaller but at this size they're full of fat. Not good, best to catch, take a pic and release. They kinda look like a big crappie.
