Fox Warrior Range By Tackle Fanatics Review


I have been asked, by Duncan at the Tackle Fanatics shop in Chessington, if I would like to do some testing of the Fox Warrior range of tackle.  This has been developed between Tackle Fanatics and Fox themselves.

Oddly, I had been thinking it was about time I updated my rods.  Tackle Fanatics thought it would be a great opportunity for me to do some testing.  After a few emails and a phone call, it was all was sorted and a date for the delivery was fixed.  Sure enough, bang on time, the delivery van arrived and I slowly opened up my parcels.

 

Fox Warrior + Full Cork x 3 Carp Rods
Fox Warrior + Marker Spod Duo (S&M) – 4.5lb
Fox Warrior + New Version Landing Nets

 

This is an absolutely splendid set up.  I just loved the look and feel for the tackle.  I can’t wait to get back down the lake and put them through their paces over the coming weeks. Unfortunately for me, with family things on this weekend, I am going to have to wait until next Tuesday night – as you all know that is a long tine for me!

 

All rigged up and ready for some testing next week

Trip 58 Carp Fishing- 2017


With a break in the heatwave we’ve been having.  The wind was picking up and there was even some cloud cover.  I very nearly stayed at home this weekend but as we all know, effort equals rewards.  I just felt the need to be on the bank.  I can do 2 nights but I am not sure yet if I will, I feel I am in the right spot and the conditions are in my favour.  The weather forecasters have said there will be a swing in the wind, we shall just have to see tomorrow.

What a view!  My left hand rod is an underarm cast, away to the left on a gully which runs past the swim and round the corner into a small bay area.  I have not baited this spot, I am just fishing with a big bag of pellet, broken boilies and a mix of spotted fin liquids.  I have done this as I feel it’s more of a patrol route than a feeding area.  The other rod is 30/40 yards out on the bottom of the margin self just into the silt bed.

My mix of broken boilies and mix sized pellets – all soaked in Minamino & Betafin.  This rod I am fishing a Wafters over, however the margin rod has a Natural Pop Ups on.

Well, the night past with no action what so ever.  This was a big surprise, there were plenty of fish crashing around in the bay to the left of me.  Mr & Mrs Carp were certainly not moving out into the main body of the lake.  I was left scratching my head at this point, what to do next?.

I have the swim until around 1130 and reeled in.  I looked around the complex and decided to head home.  I was going to have some fun in the garden with the kid’s and have a BBQ instead.

Until next time

Trip 57 – Carp Fishing- 2017


My car had a puncture which needed fixing first thing on the Monday morning, so I was down to only two day trips this week.  This week I wanted to look at the river and I was also still after a carp from the margin swim I am a bit obsessed with.  As the weather was not too hot, I found myself tucked up in there today.

I sorted out the rod, put on a 15mm natural pop up, made up a bag of chopped boilies and a mix of catalyst pellets and lowered down on to the spot.

A friendly swan called by and I sat back (and waited) and enjoyed the view.

Had few more visitors.  With less than an hour before I was due to be off, I had only had a couple of Tench, this was a real pain.  The wind had died down and you could feel the heat in the air , so could the carp.  More and more of them were cruising around on the top.

Think I will be on the river for my next trip, hunting for the Carp as part of my quest to bag a lump from the Hampshire Avon.

Until next time

Trip 56 Carp Fishing- 2017


With the conditions just perfect for carp fishing, I just had to get out for a quick over nighter.  I headed back to the area I had been fishing the previous time, but there was another angler giving it a go there.  So I headed over to the other point swim to approach the fish from a different angle.  I had thought on the way down here that it just may be a better option.

I had made one change to my approach this time, instead of both rod’s on pop ups.  I had switched over to a 15 mm Catalyst Wafters, as last year the fished moved off pop ups onto bottom type baits as the season progressed.

With the sun setting, I got under my bed chair cover and laid there just watching last light arrive and drifted off to sleep.  It turned out to be quite a long sleep, as the fish where clearly not playing the game.  Not a single bleep in the night, I was very shocked and a bit dumbfounded as to what went wrong.  The fish must have moved out of this area since my last trip.  But where to? is the big question.  An early reel in and a look round the lake before heading home was clearly in order.

It looked the perfect spot and the conditions where looking good.

Until next time
