Carl and Alex have a mission: to land a truly big pike. Over the course of the winter they focus all their efforts on landing a pike over the magical 20lb mark, putting in the hours and the miles on several different waters, using a variety of tactics and techniques including dead baits and lures.
Alex has left Carl at home and he's taking advantage of a change in the weather to sneak in a quick session on a local pond, while trying to catch up on some work. He gets a couple of welcome interruptions, and shares a couple of recent captures from the same water.
Carl and Alex head to one of the most famous rivers in England, the River Test. This chalkstream is famous for its 'gin-clear' waters and today's quarry - grayling. The lady of the stream is one of the UK's most beautiful fish, and where there's one, there's often a few.
Carl and Alex head to a new water to see what surprises the crystal clear waters can deliver - the target species are perch and dropshotting is the tactic, but when they stop biting, the lads head to a nearby canal to see what that holds - the results are somewhat unexpected!
Welcome to our biggest carp fishing challenge yet, the Reservoir Diaries. We first started these diaries back in late September 2014, but it was only Spring 2015 when we finally started catching carp consistently. In this video we show all the bait, rigs, tactics and locations we fished, to catch some of the best carp we have ever caught.
Carp Fishing Across the Pond
The USA is one of the most untapped carp fishing destinations in the world. Along with our American friends Brendan and Austin Pass we caught carp from some of the most incredible waters in States. But also Brendan and Austin discovered what English carp fishing has to offer when they visited the UK and caught many fish, including some lovely scaly mirrors. An amazing adventure and one we will never forget! Hope you enjoy the video!
The Park Lake Campaign
Carp fishing can be soul destroying one day and then incredibly enjoyable the next, and as you follow us over the next 50 minutes you can see the highs and the lows of our Park Lake Campaign. Watch to see how we target the water, what fish we catch, the types of carp in the lake and most importantly whether we catch our target fish.
