Check out this video to see the rig that Kev Hewitt has been using almost exclusively over the last eighteen months to catch vast amounts of big carp.
Just one of the big fish Kev caught on the unforgettable January session
We join Kev on the banks of Orchid Lake where he talks about the rig and approach that helped account for the monumental hit of big carp from the same venue back in January.
Kev’s approach is devastatingly effective and everything you need to know is revealed here.
‘Kentish’ Stuart Wallis has continued to brave the freezing conditions of late, and he was well rewarded last week. Over to you Stu:
‘I popped down to my local club pit again on Friday night to see if I could repeat the success of the last trip a couple of weeks back , didn’t get down until well after dark but got the sticks out and all settled in nicely on the end of a bitterly cold northerly.
I had no action through the night but was awoken by a bite from the snaggy margins at first light , it was then I noticed half the lake was frozen over!!! This little mirror was a welcome gift though. I made a sharpish retreat back home not long after slipping him back…
With the lake half frozen this lovely mirror made a welcome visitor
I woke up Sunday morning at home and with my wife off to the gym I thought it rude not to slip back down there for a few hours and see if I could snare another!! All went to plan and after about an hour or so I banked a nice looking common , not bad for a mornings work on a cold winters day!
An opportunist few hours were rewarded..

Sutton-at-Hone Kent carp legend ‘Kentish’ Stu Wallis has been in touch with news of three lovely carp caught on a bitterly cold overnighter from a local club pit.
A small common kicked off the evening…
Stu said ‘I went with Mark Boyle and he got first choice of swim, so I went back to the van to get my gear and upon my return he piped up ‘I’ve gone in the wrong swim ain’t I?!’ To which I swiftly replied ‘you most certainly have brother!’. I pushed my barrow straight past him to the prime snaggy margin swim next to the inlet from the river!’

‘I had the two little ones before bed and the bigger one in the middle of the night, size 5 Stiff Rigger’s doing the business from a snaggy margin swim, hit and hold!! Lovely times!
The biggest of the trio came in the middle of the night
