As you know I have been chasing a common in my syndicate water for two seasons now, not the biggest of fish but what a warrior. I have been on the bank as much as possible recently, with this warm weather kicking in the fish have been moving, so I knew there has got to be a chance. Last season I was top rod with 30 fish, this season I am well up there again but just cant seem to bag my target. On the 3rd of may after work I shot up to my water to start a session for the week...

Fish waking up......Chris Cox

The lake hasn''t been fishing well lately due to the cold conditions. With average depths of 14 feet the lake was going to take a little time to warm up. With some warmer weather forecast I decided I would fish a large pit next door to the small lake as this lake is shallower and thinking that the carp would be more active in there due to the water warming quicker. However, upon arrival at the water it became apparent that every carp angler in the area thought the same and...

I joined a new hard fished private lake in February now with the weather is starting to warm up and the carp are now starting to munch which is a good sign. I found a corner of the lake were it seem on one fished as there were overhanging trees and snags. I put in a hand full of squid and liver in a couple of days a week also with a handful of pellet just to get some fish interested, I went down a week ago and I had 5 tench out with the biggest at 6lb 4oz from this swi...

This had been in the diary or a few months not being a weekend angler, it is very rare for me to get out on the banks for a weekend. Well arriving at 11am on a Friday, we thought we would be in with a good shout of a reasonable peg. After a walk round two thirds of the lake was already occupied. We settled on a peg on the M25 bank giving the both of us water in front that couldn’t be disturbed by other anglers, an island in front and a channel between islands. Needless to sa...

Decided to pop down the lake for a short session with my mate Burty. We didn't get down till around 15:30, this was due to Burty not finishing work until then, I was also having a look at the order that I received, must admit the JRC cocoon bivvy is a very good buy, most impressed! We decided to set up in the trees swim, this controlled the main body of water in the lake. I had seen carp show in this area over the last couple of days and sure enough when having a look b...

Gulp! Thorney Weir I have been fishing more times this year so far than the whole of last year and I have been really enjoying it. Given a long commute I extended the offer to a work colleague to join me for 24hrs at Thorney Weir. Now he’s fairly new to carp angling, so I knew I would have my work cut out for me, but enjoy passing on my experiences to others and if I can get another angling into carping, all the better. Well a busy day and usual outer London traffic meant w...

Hi all, I have managed to get 4 overnight sessions in since my last blog and 2 of those have been successful at long last. It was only a matter of time until the bait worked. I have been using a mixture of Particle bomb and Pineapple fever boilies. The first fish of the season came on a quick session on 11/4/13 at 5am. A boilie tipped with a white pop up ripped off from a clear spot off the reeds and resulted in a perfect common carp weighing just over 15lb. It’s always nic...

Having a weekend away from my regular fishing due to family commitments back home I found myself with a spare day and no plans. So, with my brother laid up following some minor surgery, I took the opportunity to spend the day with my niece Katlin. And what did she want to do? Go fishing of course! Although it's not the first choice pastime for a 10 year old girl, Katlin has grown up around water and shares the same childlike fascination for fishing that hooked both her da...

Hello again, due to the weather and a move to a 32 acre syndicate I’ve struggled to put a fish on the bank I the last few weeks, so I thought it would be a good time to review some of my JRC products I’ve recently brought. First is my JRC extreme large barrow bag which I can say was a great purchase, it’s got plenty of room for all your tackle and has plenty of pockets and storage space. The side pockets are big enough to fit six tubs of Gulp! Carp pop ups in each pocket! Th...
