Hi,
Had a couple of years out of fishing (usual family and work commitments) and planning to get back on the bank regularly this season. Been a longtime reader of the forum, looking forward to getting involved.

Good afternoon lads and lasses. Alfie from ouston County Durham here.
Returning to carp fishing/general speci hunting after about a 15yr lay off. Did a LOT of carp/general fishing up till about 15 year ago, my wife fell into ill health,( spot on now like), and fishing etc fell by the wayside.
I have recently returned along with my 10 year old son, who is as keen as mustard.
Lots and lots have changed since i was last on the scene, all very interesting, and a load of marketing ******** i see now also.
Anyway tight lines all

Hi guys, Chris here. I've been out of fishing now for a few years and a recent trip has really spurred me to get back in to it. Based in North Kent and looking in to venues (club waters and syndicates) near me to really help me get going a lot more this year. Any thoughts welcome

Hello!

My name is Emily, I live in a suburb of London. My dad loves fishing, it is the process that inspires him. In the morning, come to the lake or pond, and quietly in the silence of fishing - so he spent most of his weekend.
He took me with him from an early age, most likely because of this I also love fishing.
Now we also fish with him, I rarely go alone. The main meeting place for us is Walthamstow Reservoirs, the place is very good, not only for fishing but also for running and relaxing after work. I work as a web designer in a large game portal Casino Now, so fresh air and jogging will benefit, for me to lead a sedentary lifestyle is not correct.
I came to this forum to look for answers to questions that interest me and my dad, as well as to communicate with fishing enthusiasts!

Greetings. My job took up a great deal of time and energy so I think I spent as much time lurking on this forum as did I did on the bank, learning things I didnít have the opportunity to try out. Recently my employer decided that they didnít want my time and energy any more and gave me the rest of my life off. Iím very excited about the year ahead. Even paid for a Ringwood ticket and plan to get my moneyís worth out of it.

Hi all, recently joined this forum after getting back into fishing last year after a 25 year hiatus! I must admit to having become obsessed with carp fishing all over again & canít really understand why I originally stopped. I guess life got in the way!

Now living near Reading, Iím spoilt for choice when it comes to quality carp fisheries within a short distance of home.

Itís been a interesting learning curve so far & I still have much to learn, but Iíve managed to put a few on the bank this year so canít complain!

I look forward to contributing to the discussions here & hopefully picking up some useful info too.

Hello, I've just recently joined the Forum so thought it only polite to introduce myself.
I'm Andy and have only recently returned to Carp Fishing after a near 15 year lay off.
Originally from Essex, now living in Norfolk since 2008.
Work, Marriage and Family Life seem to take up most of my time, I try to get out on the bank at least once a week, but just day sessions at the moment.
I've been fishing a local lake and catching on a regular basis which is always a confidence boost when trying old and new rigs, techniques and baits.
I now feel ready to try a harder water hopefully to try and land one of the bigger lumps it holds.
But just enjoying getting back to it all and stealthily sneaking the new items of gear and tackle into the shed on a regular basis without the mrs noticing.....

Hi! New guy here, great to have found this carp fishing discussion forum. I'm hoping to learn more from the other members here. Whenever I'm taking a break from this particular interest, I'm usually found at home, watching my Pomeranian relax in one of his dog beds and watching TV with the wife and kids. Such a simple, yet, happy life. Have a nice day!

Hi Folks!

Not sure I have posted on this thread, so apologies if Iím repeating myself!

Iím a noddy arm chair carp angler!

Arm chair, because due to my current Mental Health problems I canít leave the house for more than 15 minutes. Otherwise I get the shakes, sweat profusely and get a severe stutter whic is all so embarrassing so I rarely get out. Not carp fished for ages.

Iím a noddy because my fishing luggage doesnít match. Neither do all my rods and reels. I still use monkey climbers. I donít have my rods close to the ground or tight together and in the same place.

My biggest fish (well the one that sticks in the memory) is 15.75 lbs, which I caught at fishers pond which I caught in 1993. However my photo album says I caught a 16.25lber the following year but I have no recollection of that fish.

I have only seen one twenty on the bank, when I used to cycle to Keston ponds and fish the top lake. A man and his family bought down an old bathtub which was filled with a pink soulution (reminded me of potassium permanganate from chemistry lessons) in which was the biggest carp I had ever seen in the flesh. He said it was 20lbs and that he would break my legs if I caught it. I think that fish went on to become ďthe petĒ.

My main carp tactic is to pub chuck a rod out and fish another in the margins using float fishing tactics lift style with corn, meat or paste.

I only fish 2 rods but that may well change now you can get a 3 rod licence.

I fish with rods ďon churnĒ

I donít fish zigs.

Floating crust is my go to floater fishing bait.

Iím stuck in the 90ís carp fishing zone, and canít get my head a round modern carp fishing.

I have used shelf life boilies in fact I have some spicy shrimp and prawn which have been soaking fir over 5 years now. However I prefer to make my own. A pound of bait is enough for me. I feel making your own bait is part of the whole carp fishing experience although Iím no way an expert. I guess thatís why I tie my own trout flies too.

I donít own a spod rod, and my marker rod was never used and was recommissioned as great mackerel catching machine until it broke.

I donít post on here that frequently, only when something has been rattling around in my brain which has me searching for answers.

I am fascinated by bait and flavours ever since I made my own in the early 90ís

Although I would love to hook a 20 lber, I would much rather catch lots of singles and doubles on my 1.75lb test curve John Wilson rod, or my 1.75lb korum neoteric. They are carbon rods do I guess I lose noddy points there...

I donít own a rod above 2.75lb TC. Might have to check that.

My carp fishing chair is an old camping job from millets.

What else.....

I enjoy noddy bashing for other fish and usually only have the one rod out for carps

Iím a Delkim user. Not sure this makes me a noddy, but.....

Most of my fishing takes place in my dream world when Iím asleep.

I have never had the nack of catching a lot of carp in the past In real life, but for some strange reason Iím much better beach fishing. Canít seem to go wrong there (apart from trying to catch a bass from west bay pier - 14 blanks and counting!)

Oh I also am fascinated by carp rigs. I have loads of different ones tied up that I will probably never used but like bait making it brings back memoryís and is part of the process.

I wish I had a good thinking mind like the likes of Frank Warwick who can come up with a different idea and not be afraid of not following the crowd.

I donít have a carbon landing net.

I donít have chest waders and get in the water for release shots. Strange that because as a trout fisherman, waders can be useful - also for beach fishing too. In fact the only time Iím in the water is when I fall in.

I donít own a sandwich toaster. Pot noddles and tinned stuff do me proud.

My bivvy is a rather battered Rod Hutchinson amorphous (I think) with ally poles. I bought it in the 90,s from pence angling and it cost a months salary at the time I think.

I have never fished abroad - again, not sure that makes me a noddy.

The most bait I have ever put in whilst fishering was probably 2lbs of home made.

What else to bore you with?

No dvds or radio for me when fishing. I just like to soak in the atmosphere and let my mind wander. I have read a few books though when on the bank. Tim Paisleyís Carp season is a winner.

Iím not doing any social media atm as I find it makes my mental health worse, but I do have twitter and Facebook accounts.

I think Iím a ďjust being thereĒ kind of angler (well not being there atm I know) although catching is nice, atmosphere is just as important. I guess if I felt the lead down, used deeper pro or fish spy it might up my catch rate rather than the usual pub chuck.

Hi all,
New to the forum so thought I'd say Hi. I've been carp fishing for 20+ years now mainly around Hampshire and southern France. Like all of us, I don't get to go fishing as much as I would like, but still appreciate the times when I do get a chance to get out!!
Looking forwards to being part of this fourm! Looks like a gold mine of all things carpy!
All the best
Mark

Hi,

I'm new to the forum, and fishing generally.

Picked it up over the last 4 years, however I have really come a long way in the last year, fishing trickier waters than I probably should but wanted to challenge myself. (resulted in many blanks )

Now have a better idea of goals and what I want to target. 12 year old son tends to tag along most of the time. (he loves it)

Anyhow, nice to meet you all

Tight lines
Hicksy

Hello to everyone.

Been reading and enjoying this forum for months and finally I decided to register as a full member.

I am comming from Bosnia, leave here and fish here, and English is not my native language so I do apologize for any grammar errors I make, be gentle .

I started fishing like when I was 6 years old with my father and fishing since then and that is about 29 years. Last couple years I have dedicated myself in carp fishing and found that hihgly interesting, so much that I consider myself as fanatic.

I love camping, nature, so much that I could make my life in tent and I try to pass that passion to my kids and family.

Hope I will be useful member and my experience will help others on this forum, like many of you have helped me with various questions that have get me on this forum in first place.

Hi all, not long signed up on here and still figuring out how to use the site, got sick of fb and all the rubbish that gets posted on there. Always fished since a kid but got into my carp fishing about 8 years ago. Manly fish the day tickets around the colne valley, Farlows, Thorney Weir, go over to Linear now and again. Looking forward to chatting about all things carpy.

River Lot, Carjac - Cenevieres, France

Just put a first post in the venues (foreign) section.

Hope to learn a bit about carp fishing from you guys. I have done plenty of other fishing over 60 years but only had a few small wild carp from a Scottish loch about 40 years ago.

Now I live near the River Lot I intend doing a good bit more carp fishing.

Steve

Hi,

After not fishing for over five years I've decided wipe the dust off the rod and give it a go again.

Seems a great forum, with lots of great information

Hi

Returning back to some Carp fishing after about 10 years. In the Gloucestershire area and looking for any advice on good day ticket waters. I cut my teeth on Carping on Eastnor Castle lake as my Grandfarther used to sell the day tickets there.

Cheers Jon

Hello,

Been looking for a couple of weeks and just signed up today. Loads of info on here and will hopefully help me in the coming weeks/months. I'm new to carp fishing, but have coarse/match/fly fished for 15 years. Looking forward to getting stuck in and learning as much as possible through fishing and this forum also.

Hey all,
Getting my Carp vibe on again after 20yrs. A lot's changed since my Gardner rodpod and 45"bivvy days I see. I grew up on the Farnham AS waters, will prob join again, I've heard it's pretty busy these days. Time to pull me finger out n get some carp gear under my belt - looking at some Shimano Longcasts and some decent 2.75TC rods. There's so much equipment on the market now I'm going to have to do some research - see which bivvies/ bite alarms etc are worth getting. Any knowledge or recommendations to chase up would be great.
Thx people, looking fwd to a good season

Hi all. New here and just checking in. Seems like a nice active forum with plenty of good advice!

Bit about me: I used to fish a bit when I was a kid and into my early teens, but just casual stuff down the local river and canal. I've been wanting to get back into it for a long time but for various reasons not got round to it. Now into my late 30's I've finally decided to buy some basic gear a few months ago joined a local club, where I've been going most weekends since. Just recently started getting into carp fishing.

Hello fellow Carp Fisherman, I'm really enjoying reading all the info on the forum, i've been fishing a few years but since moving to LIncolnshire the Carp fishing has taken a nose dive, still I manage to winkle out a few pasties now and again in the muddy holes around these parts. Looking forward to maybe finding a fishing buddy or two and learning a few things along the way.

Hi guys I've recently join this forum for some good learning curves and to meet some good guys into same hobbie as me! Well I'm Shaun I'm 26 years old I have fished for years but never on the carp side been properly fishing since September 2016 with carp gear, first nighter didn't catch but in morning I stalked a shol
Of fish wishing 20 mins bagged a 10lb then my uncle invited me for another night session he's exsperienced and had 7 runs lost 4 and bagged three first fish out was 26.3lb then my second was 20.08lb and then 12.02lb within 24hr session was well impressed and chuffed this gave me great insentive towards this side of the sport/hobbie. Went to east delph on 28 December caught a 23.02lb in cold weather lol woke up and was about 1inch of ice on lake lol then about two weeks ago went to another lake and bagged 14lb carp.
I'm slowly building my gear up as we all know it's not a cheap hobbie/sport, but in a overall I think I've achaived a lot within good 5 months.

Any one recommend any good lakes in Cambridgeshire area??

Hello mate, welcome to the forum, I've spent many a good holiday on the gower black hills caravan park by the air field, i used to go fishing at oxwich bay, went on holiday there every year for 12 years i used to call it paradise and have a lot of very fond memories, I keep saying I'm going to go back as I have a touring van, I remember when the marina in Swansea was just like a scrap yard in the 80's, and by the 90's it was beautiful
MUST GO BACK.

That's a good size bass mate!! My P.B is 6lb 2 and I was chuffed to bits with that! My dads caught big fish from all over the world but his 10lb 4 bass off the beach in Folkestone is his all time fish of a life time. Can't beat live prawns or peel crab as bait 👌🏻

Hi Guys....
I'm 54 and from Swansea and have been sea fishing for round 40yrs,mainly for Bass,but my back don't allow me to clamber over the rocks like i used to so i thought i would have a go at this carping malarky innit☺.....i've only been 3 times(2 lakes)and have caught 2 carp,1 @ 10lb 8 and the other @ 12lb 4,they give heck of a scrap dont they lol......i'm well and truely hooked(scuse the pun lol)
I'm not working atm so have had to buy cheaply but have put a few things together to get me by until i can upgrade.i also make my own boilies and pop ups to save a bit of cash.Not looking to fish specimen lakes,just the small commercials that are around my area..
Nice site by the way....
Cheers Guys†

Hi all,
Been visiting this website since I got back into fishing 4 months ago after a 10 year absence.
Finally decided to learn to drive and passed my test in May after riding bikes for 20 plus years, got a car ( it might only be a fiat panda but will fit all my gear and my 5 year old son at a push, not the wife sadly ) when an idea came into my head " I could start fishing again". Spent at least 4 weeks looking at reviews and opinions on tackle etc before drawing up a list of what I needed, checking online and local tackle shops for the best prices and booking a couple of days of work to allow for shopping trips and courier deliveries. What I estimated the cost to be and the actual cost varied quite a lot ( but don't tell the wife ) but you can't skimp on comfort. When it came to terminal tackle I was a bit lost, chods, zigs, spods, pop ups etc were all new phrases to me so when I went to my local shop I spoke to an assistant who took me around and explained what all the bits and pieces were for, I felt like a kid again but in a good way. It was exciting being back in a tackle shop and decided to leave the chods and zigs until my confidence and skill increased and have been using a simple running rig and pre tied hook lengths with success. I haven't set myself any goals or targets as "I've gotta get a 20 or 30 pounder " as I'm quite happy enjoying the peace and quiet and getting a couple of low doubles per session

only been going after carp for 2 months now but mainly after small medium sized fish upto mid 20's

I know it's a different world now, but fishing for two months and after small to medium mid 20's..........
Don't get misled by the comics/Facebook/whatever, 20's are still big fish. Catch a 40 now, and where do you go from that? It took me at least 6 months to catch a 30

Check out the non carp section, someone on there that's asking for info about living in canal boats, I'm sure you'd be a great help and you might start to make some mates.

Hi all, joined a couple of months ago but have only now got round to posting for the first time. Been fishing only 4 years and now hooked on carp fishing although a complete novice. Came to fishing late in life (I'm 50) in spite of living on a narrow boat for the last 10 years! Have found it to be the finest thing for the soul.☺ Anyway, that's me. Hope I can input from time to time as well as ask for advice.

You could do with altering the price range on how much we spend a year on fishing, most can spend £200 a month in the summer never mind the whole year.
Hope my answers can be of help.

Hello,

I am new to the forum.
Been reading along for a couple of years and now I registered myself.

Bojan is my name and I am from the Netherlands.
Specialized in canal fishing and gravel pits.

Also have a tackle addiction
Which is mainly the reason that I signed up here, cause this forum contains a lot more info then the Dutch ones.

Best Regards,

Hi all, I am not new to the forum, but have been away for while due to illness and a few of life's other difficulties. All my gear was stolen while in hospital and I have never had the chance to get back into fishing, until my youngest Son said he wanted to give it a go, as he missed out on it due to my forced 'retirement'.
So, i have decided to get some gear together in any way i can to take my lad fishing for a couple of days. i have manged to scrape some cheap gear together, with the help of a few lads off here too , and will hopefully be on the waterside by next week.

I am really getting quite excited at the prospect of taking my boy fishing and him catching something, that would be amazing

Plus i am already getting the full itch myself, already looking towards the possibility of a syndicate if i can find one that will have me., and i can pick up my fishing roughly where i left off a few years ago.

And of course looking forward to meeting others from this forum and once again enjoying the pastime with others

cheers Russell.

Hi my name is Ben and I am more of a match angler and a winter carper.
Why the winter I hear you say, well I have fewer matches then and it is more time on the bank if I pop out for an overnighter :-)
Anyway I have been fishing for 30+ years so and have match fished in teams for the last few years, currently I am with Fosters Team Army.
I look forwards to possibly seeing a few of you on the bank.

Hi folks
I have had a long break from fishing due to ill health, work and family. But now I am back. I live in Evesham and there used to be some very good lakes with reasonable carp in. Now they all seem to have vanished or they are syndicates. Does anyone have any help with contacts or places to go. We used to have Vale and Rookery but not sure now. Any help would be very greatly received as I can't wait to get out there again.

From the cambridge area and am looking forward to picking up tips and ideas as there's lots of new tackle and bait on the scene since I last fished. might even be able to make some useful comments on threads once I've got back into the swing of things!

Hello all - just about to start carp fishing so will be nagging people on here for advice/tips etc. Not new to fishing - started coarse fishing 30 yrs ago on my local lake, then sea fishing 8 yrs ago - targeting bass and cod mainly, but too old for rock climbing and racing up and down beaches. Always fancied a crack at carp so finally taking the plunge.
Hopefully talking about my catches soon - looking forward to speaking with you soon

All the best

Hi guys just joined up.

Me and my little brother started up a little you tube channel nothing major just for fun and to share our experiences.

He is only 12 years old and is completely hooked!! no pun intended.

Anyway any advice on what you think would be good to cover in a video or things you might think will grow the channel let me know.

Also if anybody in the north west are would like to get involved let me know.

were not pros just two muppets sat on a bank but we love it.

Hello! My name Is Alex and i`m a stranger passing through this country. I fish from 10 years old, most of time coarse (feeder and match). I fished in a lot of country in Europe, put here is a littlebit hard for me to find the public fishing spots ( i mine the place were you can fish only with the fishing license bayed from post office, without to go in private fisheries to pay day tickets). Maybe some of you can help me, or tell me where to look. I`m interested for West Sussex. Thank you very much.

I kind of second hello from me. Been registered on here for years, not posted much, but soon after I stopped fishing.

Been fishing since I was a teenager, so a long while ago. Before stopping fishing about 6 years ago, I dabbled with carp fishing, but wasn't fishing the right lake and just lost interest in catching 7 to 12 lbs pasties, with no real chance of going for anything bigger. Also the lake owner started introducing (in my opinion) stupid rules, combination of reasons why I jacked it in.

Kept all my gear though and have been on 4 days in recent months to a new (to me) lake. No success yet, but I know the lake I have been fishing is hard at the moment - no one else was catching either, so I know it isn't me!

But I am still enjoying it and can't wait to get back out there.

Hey everyone,

Im new to the forum, did a bit of fishing when I was younger, was really terrible fisherman tbh, never could get a carp on the line on my own. Just want to get back into fishing again particularly carp fishing. I know i missed the best time (summer) for it. I've got an old rod and reel still and some 15 lb line and some hooks and weights. Just want to know what else I could need. The most success I had was with float fishing but I only ever caught small fish with it and no success at all with carp. Can anyone suggest a decent rig for carp fishing that hooks the fish without needing to strike?
Also do you really need those bleep machines you put your line through?

Sorry If im asking these questions in the wrong place but any help would be much appriciated. I live in retford nottinghamshire anyone know a good carp fishing place? i've been to hallcroft one a couple of times no luck with carp there though.

Hi there,

Finally decided to join the forum after beeing a guest for many years. I live in Sweden and I've been carping for about seven years now. As far as I'm concerned this is the best place for discussing everything carpy and where to look when you have questions about tackle etc.

Evening! Just found the forum via the wonders of Google... Recently went fishing for the first time in over 12 years (or when I could still be considered "young")
After a couple of evening sessions at my local commercial I bagged my first double (a lovely common at just over 10lb) so want to build on that now!
Need to build up my kit now and go from there I guess!

Hi Guys.

A bit of a crash course courtesy of my brother-in-law who actually taught me pretty much everything I know 4 years back starting off with the Tincas in the Cotswold water park.

Got into Carp (and Cats) fishing in a big way when working in Barcelona for 9 months in 2012. Most weekends down on the Ebro.

Now home again in Wiltshire, and looking to broaden the horizons and enjoy the finer moments. More Passion for Angling than Thinking Tactics if you know what I mean. Still lack subtlety, accuracy and the finer courtesy awareness but i'm working on it.

Fish with my 28 year old Land Rover and where permitted, my Hungarian Viszla who watches my kit for me.

New to the Forum. Been carp fishing 35 years, started off with cardinal 55's bamfords and if you wanted to use boilies, you made your own (I still do). Used to do well with Geoff Kemp bait ingredients...and all rolled by hand. How things have changed! Kids of today don't know how easy they have it... last ten years have not carp fished at all, been focused on predator fishing, but in the last year or so I got my mojo back for carp and am now doing nothing else - loving it! Been fun re learning everything and ticking off milestones... So far I have asked a few questions and got some good advice on this forum. The odd stupid comment here and there gets made, but overall, people have been very helpful

A brief intro from me, My name is Chris Wilson I'm 54 (look 44 and feel 74) some of you will know me as 'Wizzy' but that's when I was younger and very much faster

I've worked as a design engineer all my life which basically means 'I design and make things' or in my case - improvisation! I've also been an angler for over 45 years and own Laguna and Pristex, also run our new Bait Bunker shop in Bradford part time.
Unfortunately due to work commitments I don't get out fishing as much as I would like but still have fun whenever I get the chance.

Feel free anytime to ask questions regards our crazy industry, product development and bait, long-term and HNV being our speciality. I cannot promise to know everything and some of you guys will certainly know more than most but I'm here to help if I can.


Thanks for having me!
Chris

Been angling since 8 years old, now a mid-40.
Dedicated carp angler since 2003.
Originate from Kent (Faversham) now live in Wiltshire and have been slaving it on the Cotswold water park since 2004.
Now belong to a syndicate near Reading and have enjoyed some nice Cypry action, but will always keep the water park ticket going as the rewards are outstanding, but rare! 😁

Hi all, as with others I'm not new too fishing, been going since a young lad, now in my forties. I've wanted too experience carping and hopefully catch a big carp along the way. Been collecting all the kit I need and tactics and advice from other anglers. This year was going too be when I made the change until just before Xmas last year I slipped two discs and trapped 3 nerves. Now waiting for a operation, which has now put back my fishing. So I'm looking forward now too next year so I can recover and get too that bank finally. In the mean time I can join in all your glory with the catches you all post. Tight lines all.

Hi all,

I have just taken up fishing again after a 30 year break . Carp fishing is my main pastime but i frequently enjoy a day on the river as well and consider myself a general angler, albeit, an inexperienced one.

I am looking forward to discussion with you guys and hopefully even help out where possible.

Tight Lines all,

Hi Everone,

My name is Ron and I have fished since 1954. I have carp fished since around 1959 after reading "Still Water Angling". Up until 1967, my biggest ever English carp weighed 9 lbs 15 1/2oz.

From 1968 until 1975 I fished for carp intensively and was a member of the BCSG and resident in South Africa. There I stayed until 1994. I caught thousands of carp up to a few that went over 50 lbs.

I returned to the UK in 1994 and spent most of my life as an all round anglers catching trout on the fly, to roach on the stick float. I caught lots of double figure barbel from the Trent.

Earlier this year I decided to return to serious carp fishing, just to see if I could still do it.

I surprised myself and caught several 20s in addition to my UK PB of 271/2 lbs which holds a lake record for a 5 acre North Lincs lake.

I look forward to some interesting debates

I am just getting back in to carping after a few years layoff (had all my tackle stolen in 2003 which was uninsured). Anyway I am ebaying like mad at the moment to build it all back up and have joined a local syndicate water. No massive fish but it is a local water run by a great group of guys, great social side too.

Anyway thats me,

Cheers

Hi Guys, sort of new to the forum, was a member years ago and just re-registered as couldn't remember user name etc! Have been away from fishing for the last 5 years or so due to work/family and getting a bit disillusioned with the whole thing.

However taken my son a few times pleasure fishing recently and got the bug back!!

Good evening,

My name is Peter, I live near Rotterdam and I have been chasing carp for about 25 years now.In Holland carp fishing is becoming more and more popular and therefore it is very busy on most of the smaller lakes and canals. For that reason,I decided to try and catch carp on the bigger rivers in Holland like Hollands Diep,Haringvliet and the Biesbosch-region. It is the same river where Dave Thorpe caught the Dutch record carp many many years ago. A very large riversystem that makes you feel real tiny.....This is my second year on these rivers,and I must say that it has put a sort of a spell on me I am not catching a lot of fish,but each and every fish I manage to catch overthere is very special to me.

Hopefully I will get to know some nice fishing-colleagues on this forum to share my passion with.

Hi all,

I've taken up fishing again properly this year after a 10 year lay off.

And I must say, I'm enjoying it a whole lot more than I ever have. I'm out there any time that I can .

Previously I was just an ordinary river fisherman, catching anything that would take my bait, and therefore not catching a great deal.

But this year I have achieved some pleasing pb's, biggest carp (16lb), 2 doubles in a day (in fact it was 3, 11lb, 13lb and 16lb) I realise that these aren't big fish compared to what the majority of you folk are catching, but I'm happy, I'm catching and for me that's all that matters.

Anyway, enough of my drivel.

Just go for Shimano. I have been using a pair of the old 4500 aero GT for about 30 years and they have never let me down. If you go used I would suggest you look at the old GTE 8000. Depends what size waters you are fishing.

Hello Everyone. New Member. Fishing on and Off for 35 years. Enjoy all sorts of fishing. Will even target Bream if they are a good stamp.

Pet Loves - Small intimate venues that offer some rod bending action even if the fish are not huge.

Pet Hates - Carpers who think they are fishing in France and empty 10 kilos of bait into an intimate venue and are surprised when the fish stop feeding.

We fish to catch not to feed them.

Hello all, forgot I had this account. So never got round to posting an introduction.

Anyway I'm jack. Been fishing for 40 years, mainly sea fishing with a bit of coarse. Last year I started carp fishing, didn't get chance to fish much last season as I had a serious neck injury. Anyway started my season a month ago and started with a lovely 10lbs common from Kingston fishery in Warwickshire. Also fished bishops bowls lots of times, mainly course fishing, but once or twice for the carp, blanked big time, but been new at the time don't think helped. Hopefully this season I can get my first carp on the bottom form there.

Both of these lakes are only 10 mins from my house so I'm a bit spoilt think I prefer Kingston as its less commercial for me, plus it has a nice head of Carp for a small fishery, will be fishing it again this week, hoping to bank a couple of the carp in there.

Anyway that's enough waffle from me, might see a few of you around as I see Bishops bowls is popular on here.

Hi I've just joined I have been browsing the forum for a few weeks now. I have been carp fishing for around 15 years mostly in kent but have only really fished easy to medium waters. I have just taken the step up to quite a hard fishery across the road from where I live run by MKF in Larkfield so may be after a few tips.

HI guys, joined a while ago but been stealing tips rather than contributing until now!

Am a member of Godalming AC in Surrey and so have started targeting a couple of their carp waters with a view to doing some longer sessions as the weather continues to improve.

Look forward to speaking to you on here...

Regards
Ryan

Hi all,

I'm Sauro and live in Italy (beg your pardon for my english, I know, it's awful)
I'm an old carp angler, it's not because I began carping in '94, but just because I'm 43.
I follow your interesting threads for a while and now joined.

Cheers

Sauro

Hi

Registered for a while, so thought I would send my first post and say hi. Live in Suffolk and have been fishing for well over 25 years, just decided I wanted to concentrate more on dedicating time to Carp fishing having spent the last few seasons improving my general float, feeder fishing and fish handling with carp up mainly 10-15lbs with an odd one up to twenty. Already got some good tips on watercraft and tackle to help me get started and have a kettle now if anyone wanted to say hi on the bank.

Hi all,

I'm Ian, been fishing (general coarse and sea) on and off since I was a kid, although more off than on for the last decade or so. Got back into angling regularly within the last year and recently decided to get into carp fishing, after years spent travelling round, and since I'm now somewhat settled in an area with a few decent carp fisheries (Oxfordshire).

Already learnt quite a lot from browsing the site and being introduced to the search function certainly helped!



Hope to learn a lot more and get a PB worth actually noting down and remembering

Cheers

The link does not appear to work, not on my computer anyway ?

I thought i would say Hello to all & say what a cracking forum this is,I dont get to fish as much as i would like now that i have kids (priority) but i enjoy the Fishy conversations here which helps take away the blues when not able to get on the bank, especially in the winter.

Yes another fare weather fisherman and am not ashamed to admit it, too bleeding cold for me

Welcome!

I am willing to bet that your English is a hell of a lot better than much of the so-called 'English' used by some of the members on here

Additionally, I am certain that your English is better than the German of 99% of the English members on here (with one or two notable exceptions who are English but work and live in your country).

Enjoy the forum. It can be a funny place at times and an aggravating place at others but for the most part you will get lots of good info off the members on here.

Hello All.

Not quite my first post, but after being a lurker for a while, I signed up.

So, I've been fishing sinse I was old enough to leave the house on my own and started carping in the mid 80's. I fish as often as 'real life' allows, and if everything works out will be more often this year as I've just got a Hams Hall ticket.

Tight lines
