I have now been carp fishing for over 25 years. Starting on local park waters and rivers in and around Milton Keynes with annual trips to France have had me chasing bigger and more elusive fish. In recent times fishing has been hugely limited with a young family and a high profile job limits opportunities to get out on the bank.
Rarely will you find me following well beaten tracks. Much preferring fishing for the unknown. My latest step in my working career has now led me to Nottingham with the river Trent right on my door step. This is going to be a new challenge and certainly a huge learning curve with a very different approach than I have been used to.
I am very much a bait man with pre baiting being key to any campaign. I probably spend more time preparing than I do with rigs in the water! Lots of crumbed, broken and whole boilies mixed with hemp and corn form the basis of approach.
