During my 25 years fishing for carp I have had the privilege of fishing waters such as Yateley, Horton, Kingsmead; and I am currently on the Road Lake on the legendary Longfield complex of lakes in pursuit of a couple of special fish to add to my portfolio (as well as a very special water we call Jurassic Park).
Having a full time job and a young family to raise, my time is limited to one or two nights a week so its important that I ensure that when I am fishing my approach to the session is meticulous with regards to baiting and positioning of my baits.
