    Testing Prototype Rods in New Zealand. I was on holiday in the North Island and fished Bay of Islands, River Waioeka and Lake Rotorua. The fishing was spectacular in awesome surroundings! The Agility EXP (Expedition) range will be launched in October 2103 and includes fly, spin, coarse and sea multi piece rods. Plan to shoot more video to show the testing and capabilities of these new rods.Please excuse the low quality, video was taken using a basic ca...

Hi All Well I haven't been on here for a while the winter hasn't been that kind to us. I have been out piking in Norfolk but even that has been a struggle at times but a few more trips are planned to Norfolk before the rivers have their closed season so hopefully the Pike will play ball. With the odd mild spell here and there I have been doing some carp fishing. The waters I have been fishing are very spring like with clear water and visible rotting debris (old weed, le...

I have fished my big fish water since the cold weather started and it’s been hard going, there's only been two fish out since November so yesterday I decided to go to a water with a few more fish just for a day session on the back lake at wetlands in Lound near Worksop. We arrived at the lake to find it covered in ice (good start) After a walk round we picked swims and got the gear on the bank. I made up a few mesh bags each had two crushed squid and liver boilies two halved ...

Hi I’m James; this is my first blog for the Gulp Carp Army. So as the weather is still cold I decided to steer clear of my usual syndicate and tackle a Northamptonshire reservoir for a night. I made this choice because in the summer you’re more or less guaranteed a run so hopefully I would get on a fish or two. After an hour’s drive I arrived at the 90 acre pit to find one carp angler bivvied up. He'd had 3 fish during the night so things were looking up. I had a good look...

I arrived at my syndicate water Friday night around 7.30 I found another Gulp army member and very close friend Marc Neil already set up on the big lake so I stopped off for a chat and to find out what he knew and to let him know the news that I’d just been accepted into the army earlier that day, I was pleased to hear he had a fish but that’s his story to tell so with it already being dark I settled in the swim next door as there were fish in the area and another carp army m...

Hi guys, it’s been a long time since my last blog, six months in fact! So I’ll try to keep it as brief as possible to give you an insight into my last six months. I joined a club water close to home last July that’s steeped in history. Set in the Gipping valley its one of three oldest recorded lakes in Britain, with records going back to the dooms day book, so you can imagine that the few carp that inhabit its clear water are propa’ uns to say the least. It’s surrounded by...

As its Winter and I am having hard time at the moment with catching Mr Carp, I thought it’s time for me to do a Blog on rigs. My favourite rig that I have most confidence is the Blowback rig. I have been using this one for years. I have used other rigs, but always find my way back to this one. I use several types of hook, all depending on the lake am fishing on, in conjunction with a braided hook link and a couple of small bits of putty. Just to make sure is pinned down, t...

I like the start of a new year. After the slow wind down towards Christmas the New Year brings with it a set of new challenges and targets to look forward to. It is the time to start making plans for the coming months, which in turn sets my mind along a wonderful imaginary trail that normally ends up beside a lily-fringed tench pool early on a summer’s morning. But I digress, whilst wishing the short cold days away is all very well and good, there is still a lot of the winter...

One of the lakes that I help to bailiff is a beautiful tranquil water of around 8 acres with at least one known forty, I rarely get a chance fish this water as I spend most of my time on the main pub lake looking after the day ticket boys and girls. I got set up just before the massive snow flakes began to fall, it was hypnotic watching these huge flakes hit the water and lay there momentarily before disappearing. I have become a huge fan of the chod rig over the past few se...

In this blog I would like to introduce you to my choice of lake for this winter/spring, more spring then winter as my plans have all gone wrong due to the weather and the whole family getting the Flu over Christmas and New Year it’s all been a bit of a wash out winter for me. The lake is in fact a match lake but it has some very large Common Carp to near the 40lb mark. As I do all my fishing during the weekdays, it keeps me away from the weekends; I normally do 2 x 12hrs nigh...
