In my experience, fishing the same peg, just seven days apart, rarely produces similar results, especially if there is a significant difference in weather conditions between the two sessions. Accordingly, this blog recounts a recent testing of this theory, with an inte...

Awesome trip down memory lane on Tuesday night. Myself and Lucas went to Wetlands Lakes for the night. Lucas has never seen the place and its been a good few years since i was last there. I had a idea of where we wanted to be before we arrived going of the weather that...

Last week I fished peg 10 and managed to winkle a couple out, even though I didn't see much in the way of carp activity during daylight hours. You may recall that I came away from the session feeling that I would have faired much better had I taken more care over peg c...

A throw away comment from Richard (owner of Wetlands Lakes) has somehow lodged in my subconscious and proceeded to hijack my thinking on numerous occasions since. The remark was simply an observation that anglers new to Wetlands invariably do extraordinarily well on th...

"The best laid plans...." and all that! This week's session at Wetlands didn't go exactly to plan, but fortunately the end result was well worth the effort, in spite of a few unexpected challenges. Whenever possible, I try to avoid Bank Holiday Monday's, simply because...

This week's session at Wetlands is deeply etched on my memory. What's more, the reason has absolutely nothing to do with carp fishing. Rather, the powerful images concerned are a potent demonstration that at times nature can be extremely cruel. I'm referring to a scena...

Decisions, decisions and yet more decisions! Perhaps, in hindsight, I should have braved Bank Holiday Monday madness this week, instead of opting for a somewhat quieter Tuesday session, which regrettably, coincided with a significant deterioration in weather conditions...

For some reason, during this week's pilgrimage to Wetlands, I found myself reflecting upon the significant changes that have occurred in the behaviour of it's resident carp, over the last couple of years. Without doubt, the changes can be largely attributed to an expon...

It's odd isn't it, that on a specific occasion, a particular carp fishing technique can work like a dream, but only days later, under seemingly identical conditions, can fail dismally? Such was the case this week, as I attempted to reproduce, and possibly eclipse the b...
