    Would you rather........

    well now! given the info you have posted Yonny, it would be a no brainer. i would take the pool where the local cowboys were herding the carp into a quiet area while they threshed the pool to foam. personally i like to be somewhere quiet with maybe just a couple of other anglers but as you say, that can be detrimental to your fishing so in all it totally depends on what you want out of your day on the day.

    gutted for you Gaz, had many similar experiences myself but none of them have prompted such an outpouring of angst as yours bud. must be worse reading about someone elses let downs than my usual shrug, grunt and move on
  8. i have to admit that the pole in the wrong hands can and quite often is bad for the carp, but the qualifier is 'in the wrong hands' if a match is arranged on a water known to hold carp in the doubles then most of the fault for damaged fish is down to the event organizer. as most of you know, i often use the pole (among other methods) for surface fishing for carp and yes it can get hairy but no more than on a rod if you know what you are doing. for one thing Nick, the pull on a large fish should NEVER be up unless you are filling the net with carpy goodness, i personally ship in two sections then drop the tip under the surface, this not only exerts the pull to the front side or rear (whichever way the carp is pulling) but also aids the elastic to behave more like a flexible line. while landing fish up to low 20s i have only ever lost one and that was a ghostie who TBH was too close to an overhanging bramble. my set up is an 11mtr Leda Assassin carp with #14 elastic and 4ft of 8lb bottom to a #10 wide gape barbless, this ensures that the bottom is way weaker than the main as it should be and given the flexibility of the main and pole it should be the weakest link. my pennyworth anyhoo

    Getting big carp out of the water safely.

    as above, ditch the rod as its done its job, detach net arms and roll down. get your waders on and go to the fish if need be.

    River season

    as a nipper i was always down the chalk stream on my grand dads farm, early morning trotting a worm downstream for the trout, holding it back from the lip of the fall off till you could see one showing a little interest then dropping 4-6ft of line and swooping the worm past the trout just to see it chase after and grab it. enough to set your adrenaline boiling matey
