After spending the day at the British carp and angling show in a cold and wet Norwich and meeting Stewart Downing working hard on one of the stands, I was determined to get out on the bank for the first time this year, as my favourite lake had re-opened the gates after being closed for three months and the weather man saying it’s not going to snow for once, Harry and me decided to have a day out on the bank, we arrived at the lake early Sunday morning, had a quick look around...

Back on the difficult northern water last weekend in the pouring rain and snow flurries. Arrived straight after work hoping to snatch a quick bite. Arrived around 5 pm straight after work with all my gear that I had prepared the night before. Knowing that daylight wouldn’t be on my side I had all 3 rods set up to a silty spot I found the previous week at around 90 yards range in 8 foot of water just at the tip of an overhanging tree. I quickly baited the 3 rods with half...

After some recent short session success, I was very keen to get back out onto the bank. So having booked the Friday off work, a trip to the local estate lake was on the cards. Conditions looked slightly more favourable, after a cold snap earlier in the week. The temperature had risen a few degrees, however the south westerly winds were well and truly blowing a gale, so I decided to settle into a swim that had produced on previous visits, under similar circumstances. I woul...

Now before we start I would love to say this is a rig that I came up with but sadly I can’t take the fame for this highly effective rig. This rig was shown to me middle of last year by a friend and I will admit the first time I see it tied I was not too sure but moments later I see this guy have a take and land a fish on this very rig he had just shown me. What sold it to me was firstly how good the hook hold was, the hook sat back nicely in the mouth with no damage at all. N...

This is my first blog for Berkley gulp carp army because of work and I have done it on the rig I am currently using at this minute in time. This rig I am using is a fluorocarbon rig I had my new pb on this witch was popeye at 34lb 8oz, what made me do this rig is because everyone on the lake is using rigs with snowman’s on them, knotless knots and blow back rigs etc. It had been about a mouth from when a fish had come out of the lake and started wondering if changing my rig w...

Firstly let me introduce myself, my name is James Davies and I live in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, and I’m a new recruit to the Berkley Gulp! Carp Army. The majority of my fishing takes place on the River Swale and the gravel pits surrounding the Harrogate area. Although I enjoy fishing for Carp, I consider myself to be a specimen angler and divide my year targeting different species according to the seasons and weather. Spring is generally taken up hunting Carp on the local...

After the terrible winter we have had, with all the rain, snow and chilly winds I thought it was time we headed off to Spain to get amongst the hard fighting river fish on the river Ebro and get away from the cold fishless weather. When we arrived the river was very low down but looked in great condition, with some lovely slacks and cracking eddies which all hold fish right on the edge of the crease and a perfect place to drop some baits. Once we picked our swim and spots al...

With the first round of the BCAC’s on the horizon my brother Andy and myself decided to head for Orchard Place to see how it would fish in these difficult conditions. We arrived in less than ideal weather. It was pouring with rain and it didn’t look like it was going to let up. I hate setting up in the rain but I had my new Extreme barrow to load my kit onto and this comes with a rain cover so kept everything dry for the long walk to my swim. My STI 2 rib brolly took minut...

What a last few weeks weather we have had. I had one last chance to fit in one more session on our club water before the season ended. I arrived on the Sunday morning and was fortunate enough to be able to fish thanks to the club chairman as there was a match on. I had to go down the far end of the lake which wasn't all that bad as it sheltered me from the nasty biting north east wind. I opted to fish a 12mm Cocobanana pop up to the snags on the right hand side of my s...
