    First carp trip

    Had a lovely mirror about the 10lb mark surface feeding at my rod tips within minutes of settling down I was mesmerised by it....then there was a lovely common believe it or not actually clearing the water jumping for fly under some willows...it did it both days same place something I've never seen before is a carp actually leaping out the water for fly....
  2. I am originally from north east up near Durham but moved down here last year.....the wife's from this area ....should of done it years ago in respect of the fishing

    Bed habits of a carper

    Get yourself a hot water bottle mate
  5. Heard about the gate rule and to be honest it doesn't really bother me........so will still give it a go I think mainly as it's fairly local

Resurrection of a very old thread here that I discovered on the search facility.......anyone fished it recently any info on the place regarding prices etc....it's quite local to me approx 15 mile away planning a look down this next week or so when I get free time to have a look but just wondered if anyone has any thoughts on the place good or bad Mark

    Ok stupid question from newcomer

    You don't have to use boilies for carp. If you used boilies for Barbel then there are no changes to what you already know. Concentrate on location. Yeah I realise that but all I have used or come across previously are pre packed shelf life stuff I had not heard of air drying etc The replys above have more than answered the question with some good detail

    Ok stupid question from newcomer

    Got loads a stuff going through my head at the moment Never actually cast a line for carp yet but been fishing for well over 20 year and just trying to get my head around all the terminology and related jargon that goes with carp fishing Barbel have been my main quarry over the years
