Just a note of thanks for creating a brilliantly educational fishing web site. Clearly there is lots of effort gone in to the writing of the subject matter and it has been a real eye opener for me as well as being very enjoyable to read. The pieces on carp baits, digestive habits and weather has been of enormous value.
Your site has provided me with loads of knowledge that I know will help me put more fish on the bank and has, it’s fair to say, help to reinvigorate me and my passion for carp angling. It’s been a long cold winter for me and I can’t wait to put into action the things I have learned from your site – I also look forward to reading the additional articles on your site. Many thanks, Mike (UK).
Hello there, Picture the scene - I'm sitting in an office in the centre of London, bored out of my skull, wishing I was sitting behind my carp rods anywhere and then I stumble across your website. Wow is all I can say!
As an experience sea angler, who only took up carp fishing two years ago, I have been glued to your website for the past two days. In fact, I have read every article from start to finish! I would like to congratulate you on such a detailed, informative and easy to use website. The pictures are just fantastic and make it such a comprehensive guide to someone like me who is isn't keen on using pop up baits. I can only imagine the effort that must have gone into it! I look forward to trying some of your techniques. Well done Russell (UK).
Absolute cracking site this. I wanna try to make the fizzing boilie rig, can you tell me where I can get those fizzy tabs with the holes in like in your pic demo?
The information you have provided on this carp fishing site is free yet many manufactures i.e Fox, Korda would be charging for it, so thanks as it contains a wealth of info. Many thanks - Brian (UK).
Hey there. Firstly I would just like to say that your website is brilliant! Well done for such an informative site. I often look at your site as a source of reference. Thanks - Sean (UK)
Carp fishing is becoming increasingly popular in the UK and Europe. Each week hundreds, maybe thousands, of new anglers experience the pleasure of catching big carp. The industry is growing very fast. Many top tackle manufacturers are consistently improving products and developing new ideas to provide new methods to catch carp. Many improvements are geared towards the use of end terminal tackle, the important parts that are in direct contact with the carp. Technologies in fishing lines, bait and rig presentation have developed to help anglers trick more carp into taking the hook bait.
With the increasing popularity of carp angling, many fish in the commercial waters are consistently pressured. Carp possess a natural instinct to learn and adapt to various dangers in order to survive. Increasing pressure forces carp to learn quickly and wise up to the most common angling tactics used by carp fishermen. As the fish learn by association they start to recognise various baiting situations as dangerous and some may start to avoid an angler's bait altogether!
As more carp anglers reveal their fishing techniques and the angling magazines publish more articles, news about angling tactics travels around. The best present day fishing methods become widely used, thus carp eventually wise up to these. Eventually they become less effective for fooling the larger carp. As a result, it becomes progressively harder to catch carp, especially for the older, wiser and often bigger fish in the lake. For this reason, anglers today need to be armed with fresh ideals and techniques if they want to continue catching carp, or improve their catch rate. It is often said that we need to inject a little intelligent thinking into our carp angling methods, as well as possess numerous tactics at our disposal in order to continue tricking carp into feeding on our hook bait.
The aim of carp fishing tactics is to provide detailed information on new rigs, bait, methods, techniques and ideas on anything that will help you catch more carp. Whether you're a beginner or an advanced carp angler, there will be some information to help. This site will be used to publish all our thoughts, reports, finding, experiments and discoveries. We hope you enjoy it!
