Myself and Lucas ventured out for our first day session of the year. We had booked on peg 1 after seeing the weather was going to be quite warm. Although i did not check the wind and instantly regretted it.
With a cold easterly and a shallow swim i thought we had no ch...

Baiting strategy, is always a frequently debated subject, especially in regard to the profound influence that the revolving seasons have upon it. Just recently though, I've found myself using a drastically modified approach to baiting, in consequence of my stock contro...

To my shame, my peg choice on Wetlands specimen lake this week was influenced more by proximity to the stock pond than any serious attempt to locate carp. This demonstrated a blatant disregard for the fact that a south westerly wind was predicted for later during the s...

I begin with a conundrum that has exercised my mind quite a bit over the last couple of weeks. Having been deprived of angling whilst on holiday in Iceland, I got my fix of piscatorial pleasure courtesy of a pile of carp fishing magazines that were secreted within our...

This week's session received a massive injection of interest due to the much heralded release last Wednesday, of three new Mirror carp into the specimen lake. The event was witnessed by a small team of excited onlookers, in the shape of Richard, Dave, Dean, Andy, Franc...

What value can one put on the capture of a carp? No doubt, there are as many answers to that question as there are carp anglers. Whilst some are perfectly happy to spend their days catching 'single figure' and 'low double' carp, at the other end of the scale, there are...
