Hi Steve,

Good to hear from you. Hope all is well with you and yours.

It's great that you like the thread. Those days we shared on College and other SW venues are among my best ever fishing memories and simply writing and posting has refreshed them no end. Next time you and San come over to Cornwall, get in touch and I'll rope in Nige and we can all get together again in the New Inn. I'll get back to posting

Thanks for the memories, mate. You helped me to light my own carping spark so it was a two-way thing!

Love to San.

I am slowly getting this thread back together following the Scumbucket affair. Please bear with me; it's long job!

Cheers, Adam. Cornwall has been very good to me over the years in all walks of life and fishing, be it carp, sea, sea trout or salmon. As you know, I now longer fish in the UK as I am getting too long in the tooth to cope with all that walking and carrying. Also the modern carper, even some in sleepy old Cornwall, is something of an anathema to me!

Fantastic stuff Ken,i`ve made sure my son has read this all....for this is his Cornish carp angling heritage ....

Son is over at St Austell College and i told him to have a look at Salamander,he didnt believe me the place held what it did,but after reading and learning about it from you ,he does now...!


Similar sort of thing to the F1 track at Davidstow in a way,part of Cornish History ,hopefully never forgotten...

Hi Ken, the 2nd photo helped - if I've got my bearings right I think your head is hiding the entrance to the cut?

Never fished the island(s) but often waded out there - depth was right on the limit of my waders mind- one wrongly placed foot & you got to test the water temperature!!

I remember one day counting about 30 fish tightly shoaled up & swimming clockwise in the small gap between the islands, they didn't even mind me getting in & wading through them to get to the small island - they were even bumping into my legs & didn't seem too concerned I was there!

Give that man a coconut! Well done, Dave.

It is indeed the point of the island that we used to cast to from the Swamp. There were times midweeks if the level was down a little you could wade to the point of the islands in chesties, but only if there was nobody about! It was like shelling peas. Single rod stalking on 40-acres. It was bliss; could watch them pick up the hookbait!Happy daze!

Hmmmm!
I'm wondering if you've thrown us a cheeky curveball? Were the pics taken on the island?

Here's a hint (giveaway), Dave. The original shot is facing west, the shot with the common is facing east, both taken from the same swim!
