Hi mate, I can help for you, was stationed out there whilst in the army,you can fish just down the road from the power station just outside, take a 10ft rod and 6lb line, buy yourself some tie to nylon hooks size 14/16 some light wieghts (small shot) and a small float, bait you have to catch yourself(small shrimps) with a small kids net (1-2euros) from any shop from the sea front ,any old meat left over from breakfast (bacon) you can catch **** loads this way,just watch for shrimps to gather and swoop up, woola! pick yourself any rocky outcrop you`ell catch, you can sell anything you catch to the local taverns, remember £36 a Kilo, and anything over 3 1/2 inch for mezes, this price was as at 2007, probably more now, fresh fish costs a bomb over there mate, they love it and will take your hand off for any fish you have,remember to haggle but you won`t be disappointed........... they eat everthing, bones, guts the lot, so no need to gut and wash etc..

You could even try and catch octopus, they`re lovely to eat on the bbq
on the beach when the sun`s going down.... enjoy your holiday mate

was put there 3 yrs ago in paphos fished the rocks along the coast and caught most of my fish on squid or lures had between 2 and 7 bass every day(2-5lb) and giltheads were sometimes suicidal kept some giltheads for lunch and kept 1 bass a day and this paid for my evening meal and drinks all night ...just go into bars /rests show them your fish and they will drag you in and treat you like a king

hope you have a great(and cheap)holiday
