Hi Guys....

I'm 54 and from Swansea and have been sea fishing for round 40yrs,mainly for Bass,but my back don't allow me to clamber over the rocks like i used to so i thought i would have a go at this carping malarky innit☺.....i've only been 3 times(2 lakes)and have caught 2 carp,1 @ 10lb 8 and the other @ 12lb 4,they give heck of a scrap dont they lol......i'm well and truely hooked(scuse the pun lol)

I'm not working atm so have had to buy cheaply but have put a few things together to get me by until i can upgrade.i also make my own boilies and pop ups to save a bit of cash.Not looking to fish specimen lakes,just the small commercials that are around my area..

Nice site by the way....

Cheers Guys

Welcome to the forum. If you have a safe net and some sort of mat the other necessaries are pretty basic; a good clutch and some persistance. Yeah they really go, my first was about a 5 on a fly rod and I was sold.

Welcome to Carp.com

 

Decent net, good unhooking mat, along with line and hooks the most important bit of tackle.

I don't care what species it is, I will use my mat for big roach, chub, tench, perch and pike rather than put them on the ground, in fact as much as many hate them, even bream :wink:
