Observation Is The Key To Success

After having no joy from a swim that should have produced me a fish or two. The following morning I was up early and looking for any signs of carpy activities and I spotted a small amount of bubbling in a secluded corner of the lake.


I then wound one of my rod’s in and put a nice fresh washed out pink  pop up with a small bag of micro pellets dipped in some oil.  This was then dropped in slowly near the feeding fish and walked the line back to my swim.  I then placed the rod back on the rests, within the hour the rod was off and attached to a very unhappy carp.


16lb 10oz of stunningly coloured Common  carp.

All because I took a bit of time doing some observation, this is one of the key ingredients to catching carp.
