Trip 29 Carp Fishing – 2017


My gardening business has been picking up nicely – due to Spring finally kicking in.  This means I can only do nights at the moment.  This isn’t too bad now the clock’s have changed.  However, I do lose out on a good look around the lake during the week, which can be very peaceful and informative.

Rod’s all done, brolly up, time for a brew and it’s still day light, love it.

I have mixed up some catalyst groundbait and chopped Catalyst boilies.  I have baited up both margins and flicked two pop ups out.  I settled back to watch the lake until darkness falls.

The night past without a single bleep and another blank is added to the list.

Until next time

Trip 28 Carp Fishing 2017


As the clock’s have changed, it will be nice to be able to set up in plenty of time and enjoy the evenings


All set up and ready for a pleasant evening – watching the sunset and hoping for a fish or two before dark

What a perfect evening?  My bait have been postioned, one just off the left hand corner of the island and the other is 3 rod lengths off from my bank in a silty gully.  Both are on pop ups, with a couple of spombs filled with chopped Catalyst boilies

Much to my surprise, the night was a complete none event!  I just had the Canadian geese for company (keeping me awake).  The only downside of the clock’s changing is the morning pack up is in the dark again for a few weeks, never mind.

Until next time

Trip 27 – Carp Fishing 2017


It’s nice to know that for the next 7 months or so, I shall be able to set up in day light.

I have just done my last trip through the forest, as the sun was setting.

And the last of these sorts of photos (for a bit).

I managed to get about 30 minutes to look in a few swims, before I settled on this one.  I was able to lead about a bit, find the perfect spot and get some bait out.  This was all done in day light – which was nice.  Roll on Sunday and I will have an extra hour as well.

I was up at first light this morning, looking for any signs of carp.  Unfortunately, there were none until about 10 minutes before I needed to go home.  But the information gathered has been stored away, for one of my day trips.

It’s a lovely morning to be out fishing.

Until next time

Afternoon in the sunshine


20170402_134811[1]

With the man flu, still being a pain, I still felt a few hours in the sunshine, would help.

The Hidden Secret Of Paste.


Paste is a very successful method of fishing and is a hidden secret which doesn’t get much publicity.  It’s a method I have used for decades (on and off) and I have found it very successful.  I fish with paste directly onto a coil or wrapped around a wafter/bottom bait.  I also put a tiny bag on as well with my stick mix, to add even more attractive to the carp.  This is not just a Winter tactic, I use it a lot in my fishing, especically on the sort 4 hrs trips out.

The finished set up.

1. I like to use a fluro hooklink in a D rig style and thread the small stick mix bag down to the hook.

Twenty pence pcs size

Slide it down the line and the gently pushing the eye of the hook into the bag.

Get a chunk of Catalyst paste and mould it into a soft ball.

About the size of a 50 pence peice and then mould this around the paste coils – you may wish to use more or less depending on what takes your fancy (or if you are moulding to a wafter/bottom bait).

Then slide the small bag down.

And push the hook into the bag, you don’t need to use the bag, I just like to – it’s personal preference.

I then dip the whole lot into some Spotted Fin particle syrup.  Which is nice and sticky and also smells amazing.

All done.

Hope this helps you catch a few.

Richard
