  1. Guys check out our new landing page, whilst we're getting out ducks in a row ready for the launch, I've created an earlybird promo which will be exclusive and unavailable once we open the site up. Check it out @ Hookedgear.co.uk
  2. Sounds good I would be interested in hearing from them mate, ask them to drop me a message on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/HookedGearUK/
  3. Good shout, thats what I'm trying to do with my bait to start with, making it a bit cheaper than you can get elsewhere, especially as bait is an essential! Then you're right I need another one or two things that are cheap and drive traffic to the website. Definitely, its the same with everything really, petrol for example, if the station across the road undercuts their competitors, they then have to match that drop and so on and they both lose out in the end I don't have the storage capacity yet for things like rods/bivvys etc but that's certinately a future plan.
  4. I'm sure I can give carp.commers a healthy discount
  5. Hey Framey, Thanks for your advice pal. I'm really pleased that I can tick those boxes haha I wont be playing any drum and bass music that's for sure! I will probably make some videos after selling the first few batches of stock, it will be good to get out on the bank and really test the range. I have a DSLR too so I can film it I would probably rather give some away and get someone more experienced to do it though! But we'll just have to see. Thanks, Jason
  6. Hey everyone! It's been quite some time since I've posted on here, I first came to carp.com when I was really new in to carp fishing, asked about 1000 questions and everyone on here was really helpful. Over the last 3 years I've been desperate to do more with my life and have finally decided to start my own online fishing retail company! So once again I come to you guys for your tips and advice but in a different nature this time. Here's where I've got to so far: Company started Sourced a manufacturer for my own branded hooks range! Got a trade deal for bait Linked in a clothing company to my website Created and grown social media accounts with groups that people are getting involved in Now i'm just waiting for the right time to place that first big order of bait so I can launch the business and start trading. I'm so excited about whats to come but I'm looking for someone to help with tips on how to make the launch as successful as possible, and hope that when I do I can rely on all the guys at carp.com to give me some feedback on how the site looks and what they want to see on there :) Stay safe everyone and tight lines! Jason
  7. This is the kind of rig I mean, helicopter with long boom section I believe it does have a pop up on
  8. Hey everyone, long time no post! I’m going to France in September to fish a lake called Val D’or. I’ve heard it’s clay with patches of silt and gravel but also that there’s weedy areas so a bit of a mixed bag. For the last few years I’ve had quite a lot of success using inline leads catching me my PB 34lb in a gravel pit. Ive recently started experimenting with new setups using helicopter rigs and have had a bit of success. Fishing a new water I’m looking for some advise on your experiences using helicopter rigs, I was conisderIng Korda Kable chod leader with heli set up, tied boom section and a stiff hinged rig with a bottom bait/pop up snowman set up. Are there any situations where this wouldn’t work or have you got any other suggestions? Thanks Jason
  9. Hey guys, Me and my mates are looking to go to France next year, it’s our 4th annual trip and we’ve always gone to the same lake but we want to try somewhere new this year. I’m looking for suggestions based on - Friendly staff - Potential for large carp and maybe sturgeon/cats - Don’t want a really hard water though where we’re going to blank or catch 1-2 fish in a week Any help would be really appreciated Thanks Jason
  10. Haha thanks mate! I thought I'd create a new account for fishing only people on there that appreciate what it's like catching a big carp!
  11. Alright guys Im just starting an instagram blog where I can post some of my best catches and wanted to mention it on here incase anyone wanted to follow it to see some of my catches its @JaseCarpFishing, happy to follow back
  12. Hi guys, long time since I've posted on here, I've been doing a lot of work on improving my fishing and have been to France a few times. im going again in September, it's a big gravel pit with some reallly deep areas (25ft) and I plan to bring my Spod/marker to find some decent spots to fish. When watching carp fishing on TV (monster carp) I notice that they will use the Spod to put out a lot of bait then fish all 3 rods on that spot. Do you guys think that's the best tactic? Or would you suggest two on the largely baited area and then one cast to a feature in the lake with a few freebies? What do you guys tend to do on a large venue (it has up to 70lb carp in there so I want to get this right) just for those that are interested I've decided to bring some of my own tied rigs - 25lb braided hooklinks with size 4 barbed Kurv shank hooks tied in to blowback rigs should be perfect fingers crossed, I'll also be using a heavy inline lead setup on fox camo soft steel mainline (absolutely brilliant line) even better than GT80 Cheers Jason
  13. Worked perfectly thanks lads! Managed to roll 3.5kg of my own bait testing it next weekend!
  14. Thanks for your reply! I just got a new nozzle cut it to 14ml which rolled perfect dumbells (I changed the recipe as advised and they stuck much better) I then slowly made the nossle bigger with a Stanley knife until it rolled almost perfect boilies I haven't tried gunning out all the mix yet though so that's the next plan thanks
  15. Hey again, I rolled my first kilo of boilies this week using my own base mix, working hard on the recipe with the help from another one of my posts here my next job is to figure out an easier way to roll the baits - I have one of the large boilie rolling tables that does 30 boilies at once, but it needs to be screwed down. Even with the rubber stoppers it's still a nightmare to use - does anyone have any tips for how I could build a little frame without spending a fortune? I've seen a few pics where people have them screwed down at and angle and the boilies are dropping in to a little drawer etc but my wood work skills aren't great! Any ways you guys have got around this would be greatly appreciated before I spend a whole day or two trying to build a box for it to screw down to! Thanks
