Hi im relatively new to this carping game, just got my self started this year , to be honest Ive done quite well best capture so far is a 15lb mirror and 14.8 common and Ive only blanked on 1 session this year and that was at Thorpe lea(wow shocking i know) but next time i visit the venue i will know exactly where to fish.Ive done lots of weekend sessions and a few in the week sessions but its not enough i need more lol does any one have any tips about winter carp fishing other than wrap up warm, i live in the walthamstow area does any one on here know how the stow fishes in the colder months as i hear it is a hard code to crack there because of all the pressure through the summer months. My preferred bait is cell but that's no surprise considering its results, also i use cc moore n-gage xp always topping it off with imitation corn.

Howdo folks,

I've been carp fishing so long I don't catch anything anymore so thought I'd join a forum or two and waste my life away on the internet instead.

Anyway, I think I know a few of you on here already from the bank and looking forward to meeting a few more

Hi.

New to the forum, my name is Mark.

Just a quick question.

Whenever i click on a topic, i never see the first post. It could start on the 2nd or 3rd post etc within the thread.

Is there a setting i need to change..?

Hello all - i'm completely new to carp angling previously I've done quite a lot of fly fishing and some sea fishing. After a days session on the Ebro after catfish earlier in the year I decided it was time to try something different. So i finally bought some kit and I'm heading off tomorrow to Woodlands in Thirsk. I've read a little (magazines and forums) but probably not as much as i should have done. To be honest I haven't seen much that's basic enough to help me so it's going to be trial and error.

I'll be using a Mission X, 12ft, 2.5lb rod with a Shimono 6000 RA holding FOX 10lb Soft Steel Camo line. The tackle shop recomended Dynamite Baits 15mm freshly rolled bollies and Nash bait Top Rod Hi-Glo Rainbow pop ups as hook bait.

Does anyone have any last minute advise about the venue, general tactics (remember the more basic the better) or general thoughts.

Otherwise I'll let you know how I get on and hopefully be able to ask some more sensible questions as time goes on,

thanks

Jack

i 'm a new from China.i see your pictures many times.

i think fishing is very interesting, but I 'm not very clear about all the use of the products and also is not very understanding, I was working in fishing tackle company producing bivvy,unhooking mat etc. of course, I didn't come here for promotion, i have found you all have a deep research on fishing , so I think I can learn a lot . may i know would i be accepted ?

Hi im jeff an new to carp fishing complelty, ive only ever done sea fishing, fresh water fishing, an fly fishing, i have done a little coy carp fishing when i was younger with my uncle, an we just used maggots an sweeetcorn an bread, but i havent ever used boiles or anything like that, an i have just brought myself a carp fishing set up, 3 rods, 3 reels, rod pod it came with a net 42 " an handle un hooking mat an box of accsories an 3 alarms, an i brought a bivvy seperatly to.

But the box of accessories is confusing me, as i googled tulip beads, an there is different makes an some look different to the ones i have an other things look different to the ones i have, but anyway, i have managed to make a helicpoter rig, but want to know if my lenghts of line are to long or not long enough, the line from the swivel to the weight is 50 cm, an the line is connected to a swivel an pear shaped bomb with swivel built into it, so i tied the line to that an then put a piece of rubber tubin over the swivel to protect it an then put a rubber stop bead about 10 cm away from the swivel at the top wich ties to the main line. Is this right.
Then before i tied the main swivel to that line, i got a tulip bead, an another type of bead which is pointy an then has bead end the other end, an a swivel wih has one eye bigge then the other, an basicaly put the swivel over the thin ponty end, an that pointy end went into the tulip end nicely an then i put the line threw it so it can move freely up an down the line an go round to. Is that right.
Then thefree eye of the swivel i tied bout 60 cm of line,wich i now know to be called the chod an i put a piece of rubber tubin over the swivel an then some anti tanlge tubin into that as it fits nicely, just so it stops any tangles, an then i put a hook at the end with a loop for the boile an the boile stop.

So the rig does work, as in it goes up an down freely an spins round freely, but i want to know if my line lenghts are to much or not long enough , an if it sounds right.

Like i say im new to carp fishing, so please forgive my ignorance. If it was a sea rig, i could make it in my sleep. I think i did ok, as i justed looked at the accessories an managed to make some rigs up.

I also got some tubin that has a weight swivel attachemnet just less then half way up, so with this one, do i thread the main line threw it, then tie it off to a swivel an then tie a hook length to it an if so how long the hook length.

Also with my rigs, i have been using 19 lb line, as i have got some surfix sea line, as its one of the best lines, an is 0.35mm so it isnt thick,but it is strong line, is that ok.

Like i say im new to carping, an im confused an lost with so much of it, like when i went into the fishing shop today , i was looking for hooks with the boile attachamnet on it, an there was loads of diff types, some wich had a loop on at the end, some that had a piece of stright metal, some that had a spring like iece of metal, so i got the loop ones as i have stops, an then i also made a few up myself, i made some knotless ones up as i can use the boile stops on them to, but when in the shop, there was so many types of hooks with attachments on, i didnt know which ones to get or what type, an what hook size, the guy in the shop, was a sea fisherman, an didnt really know himself.

An what make of boilies are goo to, i have brought a couple of bags of berkley buzzbaits, one cherry red berry flav, an one royal honey flav, they smell really good, an i also have a bag of halibut boilies by richworth or richmond.

Anyway i hope i havent waffled on to much lol, but some help an advise for a complette an utter newbie to carp fishing would be really helpful, thanks very much.

Hi all,

New to the forum my fist post so no longer a carpforum virgin. Been reading on and off for the last few months. I've been carp fishing for the last year or so and always looking for hints and tips to net the beasts. Just got back after 48 hours on the Manor linear where I was awarded my 'blankety blank' cheque book and pen!!

Look forwarded to speaking to some of you soon.
