How did you develop an interest for carp fishing?

I have been angling since the age of 5 or 6 with my father and i started fishing the small canals and rivers and caught my first carp and i was hooked.

Elaborate on your type of angling, your angling style.

Carp fishing is my life, when im not on the bank, i am preparing at home. I like fishing with particles and sometimes with boilies. My favourite bait is rubber corn. I like to fish on a big baited spot with various different hook baits so the carp have a choice.

What is the most memorable angling moment thus far?
I was fishing for 3 days back in 2015, in these 3 days i only managed to catch one carp of 33lbs. Then on the last day in the afternoon, I decided to take my 4ft boat to the other side of the lake and fish there for a little while. I used a double 15mm banana nut crunch and threw 10/15 free baits around. Fifteen minutes later, my rod bent and i was in a fight. After a rapid fight, she was mine. I knew it was a big fish. Looked in the net and it wad the 2nd biggest fish of the lake. A fish called ‘planets’. And of course i wanted to weigh it so i just about fit into my boat with her and rowed back over to my swim to weigh her and take some photos. What a great day!

I like the hooks, they are nice, strong and sharp. Just all round great tackle!

Do you engage in other activities regarding carp angling?
I make carp videos called carping in the wild and i post my fishing updates on instagram @follow_my_carping
