Hello everyone.
My name is Peter and I live in Essex and an 65 years young.Have recently retired from work and after 40 years hard graft I am looking forward to the best years of my life (hopefully).
I first started carp fishing in the early 70s but due to work and raising a family never could devote the time to Angling as much as I would have liked.
I often reflect on my childhood angling experiences with my grandfather who introduced me to the sport and Happy summer holidays fishing for large Rudd and Crucians in local small ponds and then Pike fishing on the river Chelmer and Chub fishing in the winter on the river roding.
When my sons were old enough I had the pleasure of taking them fishing and soon joined local clubs and introduced them to the pleasures of Carp fishing.
Although I had a high pressure job and time was limited,fishing with my sons has been one the greatest pleasures in my life.I am proud to say that they have grown up into fine adults and are both much better anglers than me.
Now, I am looking forward to a great year of carp fishing,lots of time on the bank,hopefully sessions of 2/3 days.
What bliss!!!
I belong to a great small club which has 2 beautiful lakes and most of the members are 10/20 years older than me,all these wonderful old guys say that fishing has kept them going,so I hope that forcast bodes well for me.
Over the next few months I am replacing all of my gear which is around 17 years old but like my Harrison rods have aged gracefully.
Already thanks to this forum I will be ordering new rods from the guys at Cotswolds,whom every one seems to praise.
I will now sign off as I am starting to ramble.
Wishing everyone well

Peter

Still falling, it has too much and it seems to be no plan to stop.
To hear this much snow we never had, everything changes ... even the weather conditions.

Hope you are not buried under too much snow, Zoran. It looks terrible in your country, from what we are seeing on the UK television stations.

Welcome mate!

Take things with a pinch of salt and take the good advice offered. However, like life, there are a few 's on here but you'll soon work them out!

Thought I should introduce myself here.....

Been browsing these forums for around 5-6 years but thought it was about time to contribute to the forum.

Loads of helpful posts that have no doubt helped hundreds of others like myself.

Been fishing since I can remember, around 22 years. Started off with a stunning telescopic rod fishing for small stuff in a local lake when I was a kid and progressed through the years. Only started carp fishing seriously about 2 years ago and it really has me 'hooked'.

Hello everyone
My name is Zoran, I'm from Serbia. I've been fishing for about 15 years ago, initially I fish caught with lures for pike, perch and catfish, carp fishing now. Carp is much more demanding users for fishing and a real pleasure to catch carp, take pictures of it and go back into the water.
I hope that I divided my experience with you about carp fishing

Had a little boy 2 yrs ago, so starting up again now..

Based in Brentwood, don't know many carp anglers so always happy to fish with other members around the area..

Looking forward.to a massively vain set up and relaxing catching some 20s..
