  1. Uncaught Carp vs Regularly caught fish

    Interesting read
  2. River carping, Essex and suffolk borders

    Thanks fellas. just want to catch a more natural carp. I done my first ardleigh res day yesterday. No surprise , but not a bite though spending a day lookimg on the water I saw lots of spots where the fish were showing. Think I'm going to have a walk down the colne with a few stalking rods to hand this weekend. Thanks for the suggestions 👍đŸģI'll post a pic if I catch anything
  3. Hi people, I know there are a few river systems throughout Essex. Just wondered if anyone can recommend any good stretches and if they actually hold carp of any quantity. The colne and stour are near to me, has anyone carp fished these ? Thanks for reading 👍đŸģ

    Yeah I've seen a pic of this heart tail, from last year I believe. Great looking fish. I had a 10 year hiatus from fishing. Still quite new to it , could you elaborate on what a colder water mix is please? Cheers

    Great and intriguing reply, thankyou. Ive been down there this week a few times and seen two jumpers. Got my marker rod out the boot and found a few likely spots also. When you say quality baits, what boilies did you tend to use? I've got to say in regard to fish that show, they seem really few and far between. I was going to do a few 12 hour day sessions on prebaited spots but it seems most come out at night from what I hear. I will do nighters but currently am not a member. So can day ticket only

    Dagenham, how did you get on mate?
  8. What is your newest purchase

    Was considering a couple of stalker rods and came across two 9ft fox stalker x 2.75 tc. I love them. Much preferred to the Nash ones. If anyone has one laying about I'd love to make my set up to a 3some 🙂

    There is a pic of a 46lb from this year I've seen floating about. I'll try dig it out for you. Only saw it last week. Great pics by the way. Amazing fish

    But there are rumours of bigger around the bank. No one actually really knows I don't think as it's not heavily fished and was never initially stocked. The fish all found their way to the water naturally many years ago. Though recently some stocking has gone on I believe

    Yeah I see a pic of a 46 that came out this year too

    http://ardleighreservoir.co.uk/ all the info you need on here mate. I live not too far off, I'm still scoping out swims and about to go over there with a marker rod seeing what I can find. But if your down there sat let me know how your getting on, I may even be walking about with a marker rod and come say hello lol

    Yes mate. Unattended ticket booth, fill your ticket out yourself, leave the ÂŖ8 in an envelope and crack on. I'm yet to fish it but walked it lots. It's some water I'm telling you. Mammoth in size. I also spoked to one of the bailiffs today and he said the carping is hard, his estimate in 250 carp, averaging 25lbs. Salok in this thread has fished it and talks in depth about it in various posts. It's a tough nut to crack but the mystery element is somewhat alluring. No one really knows what is in there except the fish recently added from their small lake next door, so I'm told. On a negative it seems there is bundles of bream in there.
