Pastures New........Chris Cox

This season I have taken on a new carping mission. Its a larger water than last years, containing around 80 carp in 12.5 acres. The lake is full of weed, snags and is absolutely gin clear. Last season I fished a small lake of 4 acres with a large stock of carp and caught lots of fish but felt like a needed a real challenge. My target this season was to take on a hard venue with a tough reputation and fish for some real jewels in the carping crown. This venue is set in the ...

On Saturday 11th may Harry and I decided to do a quick overnighter at Taswood lakes Norfolk On arrival the lake was very quiet. As we walked round there were a few fish showing in and round the two small islands and the Lilley’s close by, so we decided to wet a line in the two closest swims. Harry chose the area just past the island on the back of the lillies About two hours had past when the bailiff was doing his last walk round and stopped for a chat and telling us the f...

First overnighter is finally here, due to weather, family and work commitments it’s been a bit hectic, weather has been glorious and warm all week with strong south westerly’s and true to form the day I planned is cooler with wind due to change tonight to a northerly :-( . With this in mind I have chosen a peg on the back of the south westerly so when the wind changes it will push into my corner, hopefully bringing a couple of fish with it later in night and early morning. As...

Short Session..Matthew Deakin

Had a couple of short day sessions since my last blog, not had much just a couple of small carp, really did struggle and rig placement was the most important aspect on the two days. I fished the same swim as it was the only area I had witnessed any fish movements so it seemed best option, add to that it was bitterly cold in the wind, this area was sheltered at the back of a large reedbed. Even the water was too cold for the coots who spent most of the day on the bank w...

With the long bank holiday weekend I had the opportunity to get a short 24 hr session on the bank, but I think everyone else had the same idea but who would blame them, the weather was going to be better than it had been for a while, on arrival at taswood lakes early Sunday morning I found the lake was rammed and only a few swims free so I had a long slow walk round looking for somewhere to wet my lines as I continued round a man with a stacked barrow was coming the other wa...

JRC Kit review and first session on Red Crustacean and Squid Liver. It’s a while since I’ve been here; my last session was back in the frozen winter when I caught my PB 25lb 12 Common which got me a weekly winners badge in the Ace Carp Cup with Angler Mail. Then came the closed season on my private water in Sussex. This time out gave me the opportunity to sort through my gear and have a tidy up and reorganise for the new season. I purchased a few new items of kit from the g...

For me, a big part of my fishing is the satisfaction of helping other anglers. My friend, Graham Elwell is currently going through the transitional stage of being a Course Fisherman to becoming a Carp Angler. Graham, will be joining Steve Cooper and myself, on a trip to Dreamlakes, France, later in the year, so for him it was vital to get some much needed advice and tips, and more importantly, confidence. We had opted to do, a 48 hour session, on a day ticket venue in Hinck...

Day Ticket Carping By Lee Pollard

After fishing many day ticket waters over the years I know how frustrating it can be with all the bait going in the lake and angling pressure. From experience I have found the “ little and often” approach works best. On these type of venues 99% of the time I stick to Pva bags which are very effective and quite often result in a quick bite. The idea of the bag is that its small and very compact, and for me its just enough bait for one mouthful and the fish should be hooked....

PHEW! At last, with my exams out of the way it was time for a bit of fishing. Having recently purchased a syndicate ticket for a club water in Wales, I was very keen to get up there again. My year so far hasn’t really been very successful in carp term, only managing to bank a tench and a bream in the last few trips and also losing a couple of carp. I arrived pretty early at the lake on Saturday morning. It was very mild but then again with the horrendous weather we’ve been...

The club season has finally opened and Tim and myself are finally able to get on the bank for our first session of the season ( I did a overnighter on opening night and had 15 bream!!). As most of my fishing now I fish over a spread of squid and liver and tuna spice with a pop up on either a short chod or a hinged stiff rig. This session was to be no different. I arrived down at the lake late afternoon and after a walk around I had located the fish down towards the shallows ...
