    Carp Fishing – 2020 Round Up – Carl Udry

    At 62 acres with 75 swims, lots of room and carp to go for the carp in Horseshoe are very catchable and I caught plenty, but they keep you on your toes. Keeping eyes on the water for signs can lead to numerous sightings in short spells and then being mobile, it can be very productive...

  • Carp Fishing – Review of My Year 2020 – Rick Golder

    The first week of March was when I saw my first fish, as late one night I heard one crash out in the darkness, and the following morning another showed in a snaggy corner. That same week the level had dropped so much, it was possible to walk round the entire lake. It was all building nicely, and then the lockdown came! It was frustrating, but in the scheme of what was happening in the world, far less important...

    Carp Fishing – Big Carp Mind Set Part 4 – Nigel Sharp

    Now, on some waters, casting at fish sometimes works and on others it doesn't and after a few hours of not receiving any action I started to think that maybe casting at them wasn't such a great idea!

    Carp Fishing – Big Carp Mind Set Part 3 – Nigel Sharp

    I continued to press on with my Winter campaign and as we all know we were getting some awesome record-breaking mild weather during late February and into early March. This weather had my head in a bit of a spin because, although I don't believe for one minute that the Frimley fish had stopped moving all winter, they were really starting to show...

    Carp Fishing – The Rockford Leather – Andy Muir

    I have been fishing Rockford on and off for the last 2 years with only 1 capture, and one loss to a cut off. This year I decided to give it my full focus and hopefully capture another one of the gems of the lake. I started early, with a few trips in January and February, mainly to explore different areas of the lake and start to work a few things out...

    Carp Fishing – Roach Pit Learning Curve – Josh Baker

    I've gone from fishing what is probably one of the busiest club waters in the country, to now being part of an exclusive fifty-man syndicate. I still remember that moment my phone buzzed, and I looked down to see an email entitled 'Roach Pit ticket offer'. I could not wait to get started!

    As anglers, our number one priority should be to protect the quarry that we fish for. I often hear people saying that braid is dangerous in the wrong hands, but personally I disagree with this statement. Whichever way you look at it we are aiming to put a baited hook into a fish’s mouth...

    Towards late afternoon we headed back to the carp zone, and this time we found some fish feeding; one being a dark mid-20 common. With the fish moving off Wiggy lowered his rig onto the spot and we sat back waiting to see if we could catch one of these black carp swimming around in the deep clear water...

Carp Fishing – Stick or Twist – Carl Udry
