I obtained this fantastic image from Stafford Moor from ‘Steve Pinn (aka The Bivvy Tramp)’ – As he is affectionately known by some of his mates. Photography and angling go together hand in hand especially in carp fishing where the angler is so often waiting expectantly amidst the natural landscape.

Fortunately I am sure the ice has gone now and with luck this will bring the fish on the feed!



The summer holidays provide the ideal time for a little father and son time. Carp fishing gives the opportunity to combine the joys of fishing and camping. Sleeping out beside a lake on a summer night is a great adventure and a chance to see wildlife close at hand and hear the owls in the still of the night.
