New to the Forum.....

Im David, 31 from Northants, married, kids blah blah!!

I stopped carp fishing when I was about 15 (mostly unsuccesful) and took up drinking and going out instead!!!
I got back into carp fishing about 3 years ago, but with limited time and knowledge have struggled to get in on the bigger fish.

I currently have a PB at 10lb Mirror which was 2 years ago.

With work and family I omly managed to get out 7 times in the whole year in 2011, and with a new baby on the way this year will probably struggle for time again in 2012.

I am focussing on fishing at Stanwick Lake Fisheries "Mallard" lake, and so far this year have had one out at about 8lb. (in one over nighter and 2 short day sessions).

I don't seem to struggle on Swan lake there where i've had 9 in an afternoons floater fishing!

I know have a lot more knowlege, but just need the time to put it into practise!!

Thats my story in a nutshell!!!

Cheers

Hi , Ive been attempting to carp fish now for about 12 years. Recently joined a local syndicate in Peterborough which allegedly has 300 carp in it, me and me coleague have been fishing it heavily for over 80 hours so far and yet to have a carp over 7 lb yet ! weve had lots of roach to just about a pound , small bream, and a 7 1/2 stergeon which was a good fight, but as yet none of the promised 20 - 25 lb carp. Well thats the intro done, at least the weather is being good to us at present, happy fishing all

Hi all

New to this forum but not new to the world of carping.

Started out in 1977, I seem to remember my first rods were Sportex blanks then moved on to North Westerns, reels were Mitchell 300's then ABU 55's, used Heron bite alarms for a couple of years until I could afford a pair of Optonics. Made my own bait all HNV until I moved over to Premier fishmeals.

Lived opposite Orchid & Lagoon in Oxfordshire so fished Orchid heavily back when it was owned by ARC, became a bailiff on there when Bury Hill Fisheries bought it & Paul Bray ran it (to this day there's a swim named after me, now there's a claim to fame..........not)!

Gave it all up when I had children then when they were older got back into it taking my oldest son when he was 12 (he's now 33). Stopped again in 1993 when I started my own company but in recent years have the time now to do a bit again.

Belong to a small syndicate in Oxfordshire & go to France once a year meeting up with my younger brother who lives in Sweden.

Well that's it in a nutshell, looking forward to gleaning some up to date information from you lot.

Cheers

Chris

Hi all,

My name is Ben from Manchester and I do computer software.

I am a completely new carp angler and know absolutely nothing about everything!

I am very lucky in that I have access to my own private water and due to the nature of my job can work and fish at the same time ( if I have to! )

This will be my first summer carp fishing so want to get as much time at the lake as I can.

I would like to meet experienced anglers to fish with and learn from.

If there are any experienced anglers who are willing to trade their knowledge for free fishing please PM me.

Hi all,

Newbie here from the midlands new to speci carping. now 3 years in and totally hooked on the next PB.


anyhoo Im in the measham area anyone local make yourself known cheers.

I've not been about much on the carping scene and I've not targeted the specimen + size but this year I hope
too, and therefore after. All my kits has just been replaced mutcho moola spent lol now plan to bloody enjoy it!

Im a baby pb'r at an 18lb common but never targeted it, I sure plan to now tho, I have since caught a 24lb stergeon form lynchgate fisheries(stoke golding) hope to hook into a 24lb+ carp soon.

Ive done a few bivy sessions so far mainly for pike and stergeon due to temperature ,I hope to get out on the bank and find some nice Carp with a loaded up carp porter as I've only fished areas on venues that I could get to carrying all my gear! The porter is a dream!
Set for an official year targeting Specimen Carp!

Right now that bits over time to post whore and see what I can Pick up off you lot!

Hi chaps/esses, I'm new to the forum. Have been carp fishing for about 20 years. I live in bucks and fish a lot oxford way. I've been an avid user of vision baits for 2 or so years. My current uk pb is 41lb 4oz (manor farm at linear). I've managed to find myself a tiny syndicate water for the year to get me away from the rat race! Can't wait!!

New guy here - only been carping the once and didn't catch anything, although had a great day sitting in the bivvy out of the wind/rain asking plenty of stupid questions and drinking plenty of tea!

I'll apologise now for asking stupid questions, although I sometimes say the only stupid question is the one you didn't ask!
