We have just returned from...lets just say a less than successful start to the BCAC this year. We came out 10th out of 12 in the draw and sadly went out in the first round. The swim we ended up in had failed to produce a fish in the previous 2 years of competiton so the fact we managed to land 5 fish was a small consolation. Fishing with coco & banana bottom baits and pop ups we had been catching a lot of fish from Lake 7, Orchard Place Farm in Kent in the weeks run...

It’s been a long time since my last blog, this is due to a very long blanking spell, some 30 or so nights of watching my rods do absolutely nothing. No matter how much I watched, walked, climbed trees, baited spots I was unable to buy a bite. Confidence was at its lowest and I was seriously thinking of packing up the carp fishing and taking up Golf instead. Even my trip to France I managed a blank. The weather was miserable, cold, wet, snow, you name it we had it. I decided ...

Arrived in sunshine for a change, to an empty lake, no other anglers braving the early spring. No fish showing, no signs at all, so chose the swim for comfort. Threw around for half an hour with the lead and found a lovely spot. Found two beds of Canadian Pondweed, and between the two beds of weed was a nice little run of silkweed. The gap between the two beds of Canadian Pondweed was only about six foot, 70 yards out. To my right was a deep margin with a clean gravel bottom ...

Since my last blog I have still been fishing a huge low stock gravel pit but with still no action after doing 15 nights already this spring I was still without a carp so when my good freind Paul asked if I would like to get a bend in the rod over in France for a few days I jumped at the chance the lake in question was Bossard which has a good reputation of holding a decent head of large carp. When we arrived at the lake it looked stunning with carp showing themselves al...

After two Months of putting bait in, there was a break in the weather and few days of sunshine so I decided to go and do a couple of hours. I was confide...

Hello again, I’ve been fishing my syndicate for the last few weeks, keeping the bait going in on a regular basis but the fishing has been slow and when I got the message the lake would be shut for a week to let the fish get over their spawning I decided it was a good opportunity to have a night out fishing with my dad at FAS lodge pond, where he’s be catching a few on the gulp! Carp boilies. We arrived around 4pm and the pond was very busy and only a few swim were free, so w...

Just a short sea angling blog to keep my hand in! I can hardly believe that we actually managed to get off-shore this weekend. This must be the longest stint that my Red Bay Fast Fisher has had to endure, locked up on her trailer throughout the winter and beyond. It has been over seven months since we last set foot on her due to constant, inclement sea conditions and to be honest, I almost didn’t care whether we caught or not, almost! I just wanted to get out again! ...

Spawning time.....

The water is finally warming up and it is getting to that point where the carp have other things on their minds apart from feeding - yes its spawning time. I have not long returned from a week in France where I managed to land myself 17 fish up to 39.08 lb. At the start of the week we all noticed a lack of the larger female fish being landed and an increase in the smaller males being caught. As the week went on and with further inspection via a boat we noticed that in a co...
