another new joiner here - been lurking for a while.

Recently got back into Carp fishing after 10 years off - a lot has changed since I was in my 20's. Been back at it since last June.

Based in Leeds, so not millions of lakes around, but seem like some great ones still need to try to get on.

Hi Guys

Been lurking around since discovering this forum in the summer

I'm another of those "Returnee's"... having previously fished as a kid/youth back in the 70's & 80's

Then a (very) long break - where did those years go eh?

Got back into it this year - amazing how much has changed.

And I'm now fully obsessed - and getting into the carp side of things.... no serious experience here, best is only 16 lb, but keen to improve (despite being an old git LOL)

Just splashed out on some new gear (rods & reels) and all the very expensive rig bits etc etc

Wont be fishing again until the Spring however..... not a cold weather person!

All the best tight lines

RC

It was the lake that BB stocked with Leneys in the book Wood Pool. He lived nearby at the time. I haven't been there for many years but intend to have a look one day. (without rod of course)

In later years I believe he lived at sudborough and I have also fished in the pool there.

Welcome to the forum..

Do you mean the pool near BBs home?..

I have been on BBs hallowed ground over the last few days, I did not see Angelus or Elias,but footprints in the leaves.!!

Even the above has seen lutra lutra on its steepsided banks,it is the same all over Devon and Kernow,but,sadly there is worst to come,this I know as I have seen it,it will be worse than the otter fiasco..

Hi all.

I first started fishing for carp in from the mid eighties as a teenager, but had been fishing for other species since I was about ten years old. Although I didn't know it at the time, my first experience of catching carp was poaching BB's Wood Pool and stalking a few four pounders on floating crust!

I was never a carp only fisherman, and fished for various species during the late eighties and on and off through the nineties, particularly enjoying chub fishing on the upper Welland. These were still the days before wraps had been invented. At one point I decided fishing was cruel unless you were going to eat them and limited myself to a few trouting sessions, and then eventually I stopped fishing altogether. I never lost my fascination with fish and the underwater world and always had that pang of interest if I saw a new stretch of water.

It is funny how things come full circle - one of the things that helped me start fishing again was learning about the otter disaster and the realisation that angling for carp is a lot less cruel than ottering for carp.

I probably only fished once or twce this millenia before I restarted fishing in 2018 after a long break, and am absolutelty loving being back behind the rods. In many ways it is like riding a bike besause it all came back to me so quickly and in no time I was back in the saddle. I have been lurking on this forum quite a bit since, have learned much from everyone here, and finally decided to join. Hopefully I can make a meaningful contribution and help others in my turn.

Howdo chaps (and chapesses) Newbie here... old gimmer with "Views" retired, been carping since the 70's (arms are getting sore) fished all my life, Carp PB's mirror 28lb 12oz, Common 26lb 8 oz, Leather 21lb even, Wildie 4lbs 1oz love fishing with old gear...

Looking forward to shooting the breeze with yiz....

All the Best, Captain Smirnoff
