Tinpot bags the Long Leney!

Daren ‘Tinpot’ Norman enjoyed another successful trip on his Kent syndicate last week and as it turned out, it would be his last as he plans to move onto a new challenge. I have just got back from a very memorable two-night session on my syndicate. It was to be the last trip of my spring/early summer ticket so I had high hopes that I could finish off a great […]

Quietly in the background and only known to some, Terry and his Dad have spent ten years now aboard their boat, the ‘Lady Pearl’, fishing for tidal carp up and down a lower stretch of the Thames.

Close Quarter Encounters – Alex Grice

Alex Grice doesn’t like to let his angling get stale, so that involves swapping venues and tactics with the changing seasons and situations in front of him. This summer, rather than launching rigs to the horizon, Alex has been cornered in by walls of weed, and thus the margin fishing approach begins… For me, summer fishing can be one of the most exciting times, the fish have not long spawned […]

It’s a Common Theme – Tony Burnham

Tony Burnham… opening night at Yateley… and a couple of its finest common carp! Sat at my desk doing another day’s mundane work suddenly the music cuts out as a call comes in from Martin “we’ve just shut the Carpark they’ve started spawning”.

Spring Underway – Alex Grice

I say this every year, but it has to be one of the slowest winters on record! With every type of weather system flying around over the past few months, including sub-zero temperatures, Siberian winds, and snow by the inch, it is finally nice to say that spring certainly feels like it has arrived. I managed to fish one night in Feb, catching a lovely 20lb+ common from a well-stocked Suffolk venue, […]

St. John’s snow carp for Kev!

Kev Hewitt braved the inclement weather last week with a trip to a snow-covered Linear St John’s. The chances looked very slim indeed… Apparently, the beginning of March is supposed to signal the start of spring. However, I’m guessing the weatherman must have heard that I had booked a day off work to go fishing as the worst weather imaginable fell upon us. I had to delay my session by a day as the roads were […]
