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 […]

Carp Fishing is a Dangerous Sport

It has now been three weeks since I managed to fall into a freezing cold lake. 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 […]

Aqua Products Bedchair cover

Following on from my review of the Nash sleep system I thought it only right to do a full review of my bedchair cover. I have had this one for about 5 years which goes to show just how well made it is. Made out of the now legendary Aquatexx material with a poly cotton quilting; in layman’s terms this means that it is 100% waterproof, […]

Fishing Doldrums

Maybe just maybe the title of this Blog post is a little on the dramatic side but 2 months without getting on the bank is driving me a little stir crazy. I had no free time in August due to work and family commitments. I know I could have done an overnight session here and there. Whilst we are talking about overnight sessions just what […]

Nash Fang X and Twister hooks review

If you have read my earlier post about My Golden Rules of Carp fishing you will know that I believe a sharp hook is of great importance. I think that hook choice is a very personal thing and I would say that it has a lot to do with confidence more than anything else. As for pattern choice my general rule of thumb is Fang […]
