How to bait up with a spod or spomb accurately

Let me start out by saying that this is not a casting tutorial. If you need a specific casting tutorial to add distance then check out the likes of Terry Edmonds who will be able to help you out. What this is however is a quick tutorial on how to make sure that your bait ends up where you intend it too. First of all […]

Carp Tuition with Scott

Scott came along last week for a Carp tutorial. We began with how I go about swim choice and how important locating the fish is to this choice. After an hour of watching the water in front of me like a hawk I saw 2 Carp roll in front of one swim. So swim choice was easy. Scott set up in the swim where the […]

Winter Carp Session at Ladywood Lakes

I decided that for this session at the start of December I would not fish the syndicate but go to a runs water for a little Winter action, unfortunately things did not quite go to plan. I arrived early in the morning and it was -2 degrees, the ground was frozen solid which made getting the bank sticks and bivvy pegs into the ground almost […]

First trip using Bait-Tech baits

Today was my first outing using Bait-Tech products it was only going to be a short day session so I decided that I would not venture any further than my local pond. I had 4 runs through the day which unfortunately all resulted in lost fish due to hook pulls (I hate barbless hooks!). Never mind, there is always next time and if it was […]

24 hours with Simon Crow

Back in May last year I just happened to notice on social media that Simon Crow was going to run 5 one to one tutorials later in the year. I knew that these would go fast and so decided to risk my life by asking Lucy if it was ok to get in touch with Simon and book to go fishing with him. Why was […]

How The Best Carp Anglers Can Help You

These are anglers that have influenced my Carp angling in a big way, some from the very start and some more recently.

A little bit of surface fishing

I will put my hand on heart and admit that I do not do a lot of surface fishing for Carp. Why this is I have no idea, but this year i decided that I would put that that right and I am so glad that I did. Whilst I have not set the world alight with the numbers of fish I have had off […]

Small Water Carping

Even though I spent a number of years in the Army I am not really an adventurous pioneering type of carper as this post will prove. It has come to light in the recent months that there is a little lake, no pond, near where I live that may have a few Carp in it. When I say near I mean less than 2 minutes […]

Why you should consider buying Delkim alarms

I don’t think there is a Carp angler alive that has not heard of Delkim bite alarms and there must be more reviews of this one bit of kit than you can shake a stick at. So why am I going to the bother to add to the list of reviews? Simple really, it is down to the brilliant service I Just received from Delkim […]
