Hi All .

Just getting back into carp fishing after I gave it up when some tea leaf broke in to my uninsured garage and took everything including my terminal tackle.
(no I am lying they left me a landing net handle but took my broken one) .

Most of my stuff was second hand or last years model but i had built it up over the years and could not afford to replace it. so my fishing days were over . so i thought anyway !

The Best Tip you will ever get on this site is KEEP YOUR STUFF LOCKED UP or GET IT INSURED .

Anyway after picking up some cheap and nasty rods and reels from the back of a carp mag
I decided to get back into it this year and after 3 day sessions I have had 3 twentys (26 biggest) and 8 doubles most being high doubles . Not monsters but when your the only one catching on a pressured lake you suddenlly remember just why we all love carp fishing.

Its not your rod reel or bivvy that catch fish! its your brain and whats under the water that counts so dont be put off like I was by the tackle tarts and get out there .#

Tight lines

There aren't any good carp forums for the USA. So I thought searching for a UK site would be best. And so I have found it!

I have been fishing all my life, mostly Bass and Trout on light tackle. Recently while talking with my dad on while fishing for trout, we got to talking about him fishing when he was much younger. He went on and on about catching carp from the Charles River, (in massachusetts for those who would like to look,I also grew up on this river but fishing for bass) and how good of a fight they put up! We ended our trip at our normal time (2pm) and I went home thinking about carp, Now, the river just down the street from my home has loads of carp in it as I had been told (merrimack river lawrence,mass) So I drove down with my bass rod (7 foot mitchell with 10lb/line) and setup a egg weight rig with a big bread ball on the end. in about 25mins I had a run! And running it was! Peeling line from my reel like no bass or trout had! I had the fish almost to the bank when it made a sudden 180* turn and snapped me clean off! I packed it in for the eve and went home for dinner. Tried the same thing the following night around 7pm and had the same thing happen!

I am now very interested in this fish! Which has lead me here to all of you. So, please, Go easy!

Just like to say hi to all on the site, the name's Phil and I have only just started carp fishing. Used to do a lot of sea fishing (30+ years) but due to health probs can't do much anymore. Have fished a few fisheries with my biggest being a 9lb 9oz common on a size 14 hook and 4lb hook length. Biggest on the carp rod so far is around 6lb but hope to get bigger as time goes on.

Hello All,

I am new to the carp forum.
I am a girl fishing (shock horror), which seems very rare.
You may have seen me on the cover of carp talk a few weeks ago.
I love fishing
My name is Lianne.

Hi guys

My names Dean and im 25 been fishing since I was about 6 and the obsession has only got stronger!, have already had some great help from this forum so I thought I would introduce myself.
I started fishing the Bristol Docks and also a pond called Abotts Leigh, I always loved using quiver tips and swim feeders growing up but that has changed now. I caught a 7lb Tench from Abotts when I was 7 and it almost pulled my than scrawny frame into the water! I will never forget holding what seemed like the biggest fish in the world and that feelings carried me forward into fishing.
I have now been having a go at carp fishing and so far I love it, as im a care worker my pays not great and I have a 1 year old daughter so I simply do not have the funds to tart up my gear which to be honest doesn't bother me at all. I use very simple home made rigs and have had great success, with the addition of using back leads my last session was fantastic. I caught a 20lb ghost carp at 2.30am and a 12lb mirror about 10 minutes after the rod was put back in. I love fishing and know the Bristol docks very well, I even know some secret spots that give out fish you simply would not believe resided in the docks. well in short that is me


cheers Deano
