Hi mate thanks for your reply.
Ok cool I will head over a check it out and hopefully can get some gear.
It's ok I know that it would be kept all secret anyway and it's understandable considering the view on the old carp over here. I had a walk around a local water a few nights ago and I saw a couple of older guys fishing with carp gear(and good stuff not 10 sea fishing rods lined up to catch dinner) so I got chatting with them cautious at first but when we got chatting they opened up and told me a few things, which was very refreshing to speak to another couple of like minded anglers.
Thanks for the info mate and good luck with your fishing!
