  1. A nice Quartet in the Vale of York

    Ventured out to Elvington Lake yesterday with @drunkenmaster for a long overdue attempt to properly crack it's Carp.

    Got there early and baited two spots with a few hundred mixed KSC and VNF Freebies. Over the top i fished Xcelerate pop ups, KSC pop ups and KSC bottom baits throughout the day.

    Managed a nice four fish catch with fish to 13lb 14oz. Took pics of three of them.

  2. Nostalgia at the old estate ponds

    Well my week away has come to an end and it was nice to re-visit one of the venues i hadn't fished for a couple of years and first fished nearly 10 years ago!

    Won't delve in to too much detail, but had a few enjoyable, if not spectacular sessions catching a few quality roach in stunning surroundings, so i was quite content. The occasional nice Rudd put in an appearance too.

  3. Cabin Fever...!

    Jeeeeez.... it's been months since I last got out on a carping session..... I've only managed to get out fishing on the club matches (once a month, and I'm struggling to fit those in) and it looks like the next carp session will be the CC Social.... work has kicked all my plans into touch the last few months with various commitments, work and family outings, some work and more work....

    Our plant is due for an FDA audit and lots of work has to be done to prepare.... hence ...

  4. Waving my pole about

    Well since i purchased my new pole, things have been taken a backseat Carp wise. Enjoyed just sitting and watching a float not knowing what will take the bait next.

    Had a couple of day sessions at the Syndicate with it, first of all had a near 20lb net of Bream (4 fish), then went down with Tench on the agenda and managed a nice male fish of upper 3's maybe.

    In between those sessions i had a quick day up at a small local farm pond where i used to go with schoolfriends, ...

  5. Tarn Update

    I haven't been able to get down to Tarn as much as I'd planned during the summer holidays, but I have still managed to get amongst the fish. Since the last session where I had eight fish I've managed to fish four nights, the first of which was an overnighter where embarrassingly I blanked! Unfortunately there was a dead fish under the marginal tree I like to place my baits under which stank, so perhaps this put the fish off the area, which is usually always productive. I've spoken to lots of blokes ...
