To be honest - not brilliant.

Part of the fun of fishing while holidaying on Corfu is working out your
APF. Basically you sit on the end of the jetty or rocky outcrop with a
hefty supply of Amstel beers in 500ml bottles. Your APF is the

Of course it may be interesting to visit each bay and work out an average
APF for each of them to add to this site. Other interesting variations
are APKg (Amstels per Kg of fish). You may of course use any unit of
measurement - 'Bottles of Retsina' is another common one!
Now it is a common fact that other members of your family find fishing
boring. So one advantage of fishing from a jetty while on holiday is you
will be left in peace all day to calculate your APF. Another
surprising bonus is many onlookers will tell their children to :"Don't go
