THE ISLANDS FISHING TOURS
River Island Tours was founded in 1995 by two brothers Andreas and Zakos
who were both born and brought up in England. As keen Anglers they saw the
opportunity to provide an Angling service after experiencing the superb
Fishing in Cypruss dams.
In May 1997 we were please to become the exclusive representatives of Cyprus
Angling Holidays making us the largest and most knowledgeable operators in
Fishing in various reservoirs approximately 200 days of the year and keeping
in close contact with local Anglers gives us updated knowledge of all
fishing conditions. We provide you with accurate information for your
In 2004 Zak changed his life and now our trips are
undertaken by a very keen newbie.
I have been told many times how lucky I am to have
a job that is my hobby too. Well it's true ,
I am sometimes asked
" What do you do in your
free time " ..well.. I go fishing ...
I was bought my first fishing rod at the age
of six and since then became a keen Angler, both coarse and sea. However since coming to
Cyprus, I have preferred the Coarse Fishing as it is much more plentiful in
Beware, if you Fish with me I always tend to catch the first Fish. ha ! ha !
River Island Tours keeps close contact with the Cyprus Fisheries
authorities. Over the years we have been able to work with the fisheries to
improve the fishing conditions and tackle any arising problems.
In June 98 River Island organised a day fishing with a number of volunteers.
This was to catch Tench from Dhypotamos for the Fisheries to take to breed
and restock other reservoirs in the coming year.
In August, due to the extremely hot weather we had this year and the
low water levels there was a danger of Fish dying in Achna. The solution of
the problem was to use a pump to circulate the water and take a quantity of
fish out of the reservoir. With the use of nets and the help of several Day
Trippers bagging up with Carp we were able temporary
to relocate a number of Carp to tanks in the area.
When the water levels rise to normal we will return the carp .
Achna has continued to fish well and is producing bags of
an average 60 lb.s.
and recently we had daily catches reaching up to 240 lb.s.
We would like to thank George Christofides and George Anastiades (Fisheries
officers) who helped with the situation on their own time.
However continuous efforts are being made to improve Fishing conditions and
we are continuously making new proposals to the head of Fisheries.
If you have fished in Cyprus and have any comments or suggestions please
write to us and we would be please to forward them to the Fisheries.
