Some lovely fish there mate, good angling!

Btw, ditch Photobucket, your pics will disappear fairly quickly, unless you pay for the service.

ImgBB is very good, and for the time being, free

Well, after barely fishing much last year (still caught a few epic carp) i said that this year id commit a lot more time to angling.

Here's just a selection of carp I've had over the past two weeks angling!

It's my favourite swim on the lake Steve.
Called "Back Pond" as it's like a small pond all on it's own, fed from the main lake by a reasonably wide channel.
Nice and secluded, nobody bothers you, and due to the fact that it's surrounded by trees is usually sheltered from the worst of the wind etc.
Having said that, it was a raw "Easterly" that was blowing on Tuesday, and that was finding it's way in!
The only real problem in fishing it is during the Autumn. Because it is surrounded by trees, you get a lot of floating leaves etc., subsequently it is quite silty with a lot of leaf debris on the bottom. Rig presentation is very important.
The other thing is that the small bay I happen to be catching from is quite tricky to cast into. Overhanging branches on both sides that you have to avoid. You've also got that willow tree to contend with, which is right where you want to stand to give yourself a good line into it.
It''s tricky enough at the moment, you have got to be ultra accurate and I don't mind admitting that I have lost a couple of rigs over the past few sessions. Not the ideal spot for the 1st cast of the day.
And it's only going to get trickier over the next few months as the trees get their leaves on them...

They look built for a scrap, for sure mate.
Regarding the snaggy bay, i used to get invited occasionally, to an estate lake that also had a bay which was fairly snaggy, and it was a good area of the water to provide some action.

Every fish i ever hooked near the snags, just cruised into open water, and just like yours, would then give a proper account of themselves.
I’ve seen this many times on various waters, and can only conclude, that because they’ve been hooked close to snags, their reaction is to swim away from them?

Another swim produced well, fishing tight up to the left side of an island, nearly every take, the fish would cruise away from the island, and go crazy in open water, the odd clever fish, would dive under the branches and snags?

That swim looks nice though, Willow etc.

Thanks for posting the pic Josh. Much appreciated.

They do put up a bit of a scrap Steve, but funnily enough not until they hit open water.
I've caught both of them from the same corner of a small bay, which is quite snaggy and I expected it to be a problem getting them out from there, but they have come out quite easily.
But as I say, as soon as they get into open water they are off like steam trains!
I love these Mirrors, they are nicely scaled, not the normal grey horrible things I've caught out of some day tickets around here. These ones are nice, dark old warriors.

Thanks for your other comments guys, much appreciated.
