  1. The Syndicate - Just a fleeting visit

    Well following my success in June, i'm not going to lie that i've struggled a bit with motivation to get out on the bank and i've only done 2 nights and 2 separate day sessions since i had the linear Also with a lot going on personally and with work when i have been off, i've just been more inclined to chill out, catch up on sleep etc.

    Although over the weekend, i needed a fix, so i got out early doors, crack of dawn, in anticipation of hopefully stalking one on the float. ...

  2. A Session to Remember

    After my last session on Tarn I was raring to get back, so I left on Wednesday with a 48 hour session planned. On arrival however I was horrified to see the lake busy! Tarn is popular with pleasure anglers, this time of year even more so. My favourite swim, The Boards, was occupied, so we drove round to the other side of the lake and I barrowed my gear to a swim opposite The Boards so I could keep my eye on it, only to discover the bivvy on The Boards had now gone and the swim was empty!

  3. Reunited with Tarn

    After almost four months I finally found myself back on the Tarn. I had been looking forward to angling there again for as long as I could remember, so wasted no time in booking my night ticket for Friday almost a week in advance. We arrived at ten in the morning and to my joy my favourite swim, the boards, was free. After some questionable carp-porter driving skills I got my waders on and managed to wade the whole lot through the swamp and onto the platform that was the boards. The rods were made ...

  4. The Syndicate - She's a cruel mistress

    Well after my recent success and generally having a good year so far generally on the catch rate front i guess i had to have 'one of those sessions' sooner rather than later.

    Got down to the lake on Thursday night to do 48hrs and managed to get in my favoured peg this time. Opted to fish 'the corner' where i took the 25lb Common from a few weeks previously on the right hand rod and it was down the margin for the left hand rod. Stuck with the Xcelerate pop ups on the right hand rod ...

  5. Blankety, Blank, Bream

    Overview
    Had a disastrous 3 overnight sessions, fishing the new Luton Water at Kempston, North House and finally Beckerings. I think the warmer weather has now changed things with the carp being up in the water more, Iíve certainly seen them cruising round on the top more so I think I should have switched to fishing zigs more during the day. Fishing surface baits isnít really an option on most of the waters I fish due to seagulls and ducks. I also decided to focus on using up all those boilies ...
