Where can we camp and fish for food near Incheon?
« on: March 27, 2019, 07:20:34 am »
I really want to find an area where we can setup a campsite and fish for our food....  Is there an area like this near Incheon or Seoul?

You really want to eat the fish you catch here? You're brave.

But, I would say you are out of luck.  Korea sucks for camping. Real camping.

In most places campfires are illegal (as are most things in this country) and you
will have some psycho local screaming at you and then calling the police.  As
far as fishing goes many people fish in the Gulpochon River near Bupyeong
City Hall in Incheon.  There is a campsite there.  But no campfires.  Verboten!

Maybe way down south.

I'm going to a bushcrafting camp near Gapyeong in a couple of weeks.  It is
supposed to be wooded, secluded and local-free.  I'll let you know.

Most campgrounds (like over 90%) allow fire as long as it isn't on the ground but in the bottom part of a barbecue grill. I know... it's not the same as a good old campfire but it's a fire.

I could write a long tirade with quotes and 10.000 links, but simply put:
I tried to avoid eating fish while I was in Korea even though I'm pescatarian.
or:
OP's homesickness telling him I'd wish I could:


Which is in reality  this: There's styrofoam everywhere in Korea. I mean when I see those Crazy Canadians logging and Alaskans storing wild salmon in huge jars I do not get the urge to head out and cook some fish freshly caught from the river. The pesticide run-offs, dodgy companies dumping 'clean' chemical waste for decades and this is Holland where the government EPA is funded well and the rules and laws are upheld stringently. The water quality is rated good-excellent btw. But not in a million years would people swim nor eat the fish caught here. There is an American river lobster plague here, simply because nobody would ever catch and eat them. Companies dump waste in rivers period.


This reminds me I must have been 10 or so and we were out sailing and I had caught a huge bream, when it was dinner time the bream that I had wanted to eat had been given to the 'cats'. We had cod for dinner instead. It maybe something cultural but I'm reluctant to trust the EU when ships come from Africa to fuel up here because the fuel in Rotterdam is cheaper than in Africa. What would they do with any leftover chemical waste? Store it or dump it? And those Germans upriver?
How could Incheon harbour near China be any cleaner than the heavily controlled and 'clean' Rhine river?
