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 […]

These are anglers that have influenced my Carp angling in a big way, some from the very start and some more recently. As you can probably guess at the top of this list is Julian Cundiff and in no particular order the other five […]

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 […]

Whilst I try to keep the majority of my blog posts light hearted and not too serious I have come to realise that things could have turned out a lot worse. So here are a few of my top tips just in case you are prone to the odd […]

Support your local tackle shop

So you may be wondering why I would write a blog about this when there are loads of bargains to be had out there on the World Wide Web! At this point I am going to be honest and say yes I do use the internet and order online but hand on heart I think that 95% of my purchases are from two local tackle […]

Surely it can’t be another blank!

Most of my family and friends think I am completely mad when it comes to fishing and arriving at the syndicate at just before six in complete darkness does tend to make me agree with them! I could not believe that it was a barmy six degrees at this time in the morning in January. My hopes were high as they always are and I […]

Last few sessions of 2016

I managed 48 hour sessions in October, November and December, I also managed to blank on all 3 sessions. The first session I opted to fish Pads again which was a mistake as I had seen fish in a swim just along the bank from Pads but still opted to go in my favourite swim. This was mainly because I got to the lake late […]
