Be it spring summer Autumn or winter I’m a sit it out for that one special fish it what keeps me going I have a little saying, bigger the challenge greater the reward!
It’s what keeps the fire burning and makes me go that extra mile for a rarely caught old one. Just like when I targeted a U.K 50+ common and my dreams come true with a common weighing 59lb 8oz and it’s only capture in six years! And in my 18 years of chasing carp I’ve caught some incredible and mind blowing carp that have all give me that rush and emotion when they slip in the net.
