In the words of Dixon of dock green, Evening all

Recommended Posts

good evening to everyone on the carp.com forum.

 

Ive just joined so saying hello to everyone, I'm 57 years old and have been fishing nearly all my life, I started with my granddad at the age of 6 at Hainault forest lakes with the old split cane and centerpin reel, then we moved to Swindon (Called the London Overspill) and I carried on my love for fishing into adult life, I was an out and out match/course fisherman until around 18 months ago and decided to try carp fishing out and I will admit to everyone on here I have found it to be a very steep learning curve, I consider myself as a pretty good angler and can catch fish on the pole or feeder rod at most venues, but Ive found this carp fishing to be very, very challenging and I am only now just getting to grips with it all.

 

I have two sets of tackle (never the two shall ever meet) my course gear and my carp gear, so its cost me a fair bit of money to get this far, I'm looking to catching my first proper 20 this season, and I have a couple of venues that I am going to hit quite a bit this season, so I will keep you all posted.

 

I hope to chat and learn from you all on these forums and look forward to meeting some of you on the bank.
