I've enjoyed reading this thread as an outsider, to the extent I registered on the forum. I've had a handful of sessions on old father having lived Richmond way once upon a time.
All captures need to be earned IMO, there are all manner of mysteries swimming in the depths. Seek and ye shall find.
Eventually.

I agree that forums really are the place to be, some wonderful advice on here and at times heated discussions. Mods need to be on the ball sometimes as with Faceache you get trolls, wind up merchants and just pure ****s. Forums are the way to have opposite opinions, just need to respect what you necessarily don't agree with. Some great pics and stories about the Thames, enjoyed your travels and thoughts.

Thank you mate. I can't believe I remember you from Sutton.That was a long time ago now. A lot of these Thames photographs, are long before then. I have stacks of prints from back then, a carrier bag full that have never been scanned.

The reason Faceache got so popular with anglers, was because that's what was happening in the world. But a tiny little bit, good anglers could not wait to get away from forums. So many people with usernames, just on a wind up. It's to easy to do. Because of Faceache technology, they cannot just remake usernames so easily. And you need to be a real person, so you can't easily make a snidey little profile to go fishing on the internet. The PC world outside fishing sees that as bullying, so Faceache bosh them. I could just as easily do this on a Faceache business page that is watched by a hell of a lot of anglers. Where I get to be overlord to. I get to ban who I want, block who I want. I get control. That does not happen here, it's very different. Yet I'm still here, some would much rather that I am not though, away from this thread. Just ask yourself really why that would be. It's not anything about the good of this forum anyway, whatever it is, is it?

Forums need to learn this. It does not just happen in fishing, it happens in all walks of life. Golf gets the same thing with forums, hiking, horse racing, everything does. That's what kills forums. Nothing else.

Everyone can sit there and moan about it, or we can do something about it.

Pictures tell a thousand words. Makes you want to get the rods out, and enjoy the outdoors.

Well said, this forum is full of great people.
Today's Web Technology is a great tool, but only as good as the information inputted by people that is interesting, factual or thought provoking. The negative stuff just brings a great post down

As you know - The modern carping world can be quite fickle, but only if you let it.

This thread is great, long may people keep it going.

Thank you both, it's very much appreciated. People moan that forums are dead, and Faceache has killed them.

Well it's up to the members, to draw people back isn't it. No one can talk much on Faceache it all ends up as secret groups, and who wants to see what Joey had for dinner? Not me. Insta is just photo's. I hope these photo's help to do that for this forum a tiny bit. Photo's is one thing I have absolutely tonnes of.

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this thread. Your pictures are stunning, I love the one of the swirl under the rods, very atmospheric and the fish are real old warriors.

I have an old fishing friend who sadly doesn't fish any more but used to carp fish the Thames, I guess 40 years ago. He told me the story of the first carp he hooked from the Thames on bread flake from a boat in the winter, he lost that one but went on to catch a few over the years. He also caught a 14lb mirror from Wraysbury, again probably 40+ years ago, I wonder what fish that was?

Thanks for posting and congratulations on some stunning captures.

If they know some one is doing a bit of work, they will do their own work. We all leave each other alone.

This statement is gospel to me.
When angler fish the same environment, lake, river, or whichever, the respect between each other is paramount. In the lake I fish regularly if I know someone is prebaiting a place or he's catching in a swim, for no one reason I'll fish in that swim. The same if I prebait/fish a swim, i'm not happy to find an angler which know I'm fishing there, settled in that swim.

Few years ago I've got a good autumn/winter in a swim very rarely fished by others, I told it only to another mate that fish there, one year later, the first time I've got in the swim I found an angler fishing there. I don't told him what I caught the past year there, then we chatted about the lake and he told to me about the swim he was fishing that it was a good winter swim lol. For a couple of year there were always angler in the swim in autumn/winter. For those reasons very rarely I tell to other anglers the carp I catch, and when I tell often is the year later the very day and more than often when I was blanking for some time. Even the swim where I caught it often isn't axactly where I tell to others. I know I'm a compulsive liar in carp angling but in this way the carps I've got are increase and I'm more free to fish where I want. We learn by mistakes how do it right.



Stunning carps in the pics
