Been dodging around on here for a couple of months now.....finally got round to putting some gear together and today is gonna be my first trip carp fishing (barbel fishing for the last 20 years).....going to a small lake in north yorks that's been recommended by a friend

Keeping it simple and straight forward ....hopefully will see a few fish aswell....24 hour session

Will update when I return

That's what it's all about ian.....the enjoyment for me and a fish or two is a bonus

 

when i get on a 24hr job, i spend the first couple of hours stalking rod in hand and pocket full of mixers sneaking round the margins. i often crouch behind a bush or clump of long grass, rod forgotten tossing mixers one at a time to a nice looking beastie. just sitting there and watching the fish feeding contentedly makes my day, then belly full it swims slowly away and i think,,,,, DAMN done it again lol, gets you every time :wink: but one or two in the net is a good bonus so nice one mrkgix, keep it up :D

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....
