Hey everyone,

just found this thread a little late but should be still ok if i wrote here.. My name is Dorian and I`m from Brunswick/ Germany. I`m just about 16 years old but i have already been fishing since the age of 4. In 2007 I first saw some fisherman fishing for carp at a little pond and became very impressed by that way of fishing. From that perticular moment, I became more and more interested in carp angling so i bought my first carp rods just 2 month later. Most of my fishing time I spent and will spend with my friends at our lakes, knowing there will always be someone to be with , to joke with or just spend a very nice and important time with as a community. Since my beginning, i`ve been using to be member in some german forums but from time to time I wanted to get new experiences and get to know a different way of fishing, so i just searched for an english forum, hoping not to be confrontated with too many problems languagewise

Best regards from Germany,

Dorian

Hi everyone, I am new to the site, but have been fishing for 1 year now. I am looking to up my game a bit now, and want to go for some bigger carp, my PB after my first season is 16.8lb common caught on single 15mm Mainline Cell from Higham Farm near Derby. I am pretty sorted with all my tackle, I started off with a 50 argos job and after a few good catches and learning some of the good brand names I soon went shopping for better stuff. I am now fishing with confidance a 3 rod Fox setup.

I would like to find some advise about any good lakes in the Derbyshire\ Midlands area, somewhere I can mabe get away from the single figure fish, I would like to be targeting doubles really.

Is there anything I can do to target the bigger fish on my local lakes or is a change of water needed to find bigger fish?

Any help and advise would be great

Cheers people

Hi All .

Just getting back into carp fishing after I gave it up when some tea leaf broke in to my uninsured garage and took everything including my terminal tackle.
(no I am lying they left me a landing net handle but took my broken one) .

Most of my stuff was second hand or last years model but i had built it up over the years and could not afford to replace it. so my fishing days were over . so i thought anyway !

The Best Tip you will ever get on this site is KEEP YOUR STUFF LOCKED UP or GET IT INSURED .

Anyway after picking up some cheap and nasty rods and reels from the back of a carp mag
I decided to get back into it this year and after 3 day sessions I have had 3 twentys (26 biggest) and 8 doubles most being high doubles . Not monsters but when your the only one catching on a pressured lake you suddenlly remember just why we all love carp fishing.

Its not your rod reel or bivvy that catch fish! its your brain and whats under the water that counts so dont be put off like I was by the tackle tarts and get out there .#

Tight lines

There aren't any good carp forums for the USA. So I thought searching for a UK site would be best. And so I have found it!

I have been fishing all my life, mostly Bass and Trout on light tackle. Recently while talking with my dad on while fishing for trout, we got to talking about him fishing when he was much younger. He went on and on about catching carp from the Charles River, (in massachusetts for those who would like to look,I also grew up on this river but fishing for bass) and how good of a fight they put up! We ended our trip at our normal time (2pm) and I went home thinking about carp, Now, the river just down the street from my home has loads of carp in it as I had been told (merrimack river lawrence,mass) So I drove down with my bass rod (7 foot mitchell with 10lb/line) and setup a egg weight rig with a big bread ball on the end. in about 25mins I had a run! And running it was! Peeling line from my reel like no bass or trout had! I had the fish almost to the bank when it made a sudden 180* turn and snapped me clean off! I packed it in for the eve and went home for dinner. Tried the same thing the following night around 7pm and had the same thing happen!

I am now very interested in this fish! Which has lead me here to all of you. So, please, Go easy!

Just like to say hi to all on the site, the name's Phil and I have only just started carp fishing. Used to do a lot of sea fishing (30+ years) but due to health probs can't do much anymore. Have fished a few fisheries with my biggest being a 9lb 9oz common on a size 14 hook and 4lb hook length. Biggest on the carp rod so far is around 6lb but hope to get bigger as time goes on.
