  • Hello Anglers!!

    Hi I am a lady angler of 22. I live in the south!! Been looking for some good advice on specimen fishing with a little advice on good match techniques!! I would ideally like to find a new fishing partner, although I know its not as easy!!

    More than anything the advice would be great. The biggest carp I have had was a 24.5lb common in a 2 hour session. GGGRREEAATT!! But I just cant beat it!!

    My match skills are not really much to talk bout as i fell asleep during the last 12hr night match!! So if anyone has any advice for me i would appreciate it so much!!


    Tight lines everyone!!!

          Hello Billy Boy. Thans for your support I appreciate it!!! I have been told its not that easy to find people on here that live in my area or into carp fishing like I am!!

          Maybe one day!! Its mainly to go out and try new waters and techniques with the possibility of going to France! i cant really go on my own!!

          Most of my mates are not into fishing including males!!!

          Help?

                    Hi Gem,

                    Oh ok you have no specific needs when it comes to fishing?? I am in the world of specimen hunting at the moment. I have fished some matches but haven't quite got the nack of it yet!!! Too much bottom feeding I think!!!!

                    Where bouts are you in the country?

                      Well Tina some simple advice i can give you is to look and learn the water I fish matches once a month in a small club and the guys keep swearing at me for winning and they ask me what am I doing wrong so I say know your water know your target species and what they like at each time of year. Be accurate with your feed especially on waters where carp are present and do plenty of reccies as nothing helps more in the winter on carp waters than knowing where those lily beds are. Just won a match on a water this weekend gone because I knew where the features (lilies) were.
                      Now I am not a specimen hunter but if you start to use some of your match tactics in your carp fishing you may be surprised in watch you catch small baits and the such can work wonders.

                        Hi Sharkyone,

                        Thanks for your advice i will most certainly try this. I really appreciate it. I would really like to get babck into matches again. I also have a pole but i am absolutley useless at rigging it. I have used it a few times but i had assistance to rig. I guess i dont quite understand the concept of real pole fishing.

                        I would love to feel the pull of a carp on the end of it!! the biggest i have had is a 4lb perch on it which was ok, apart from the fact i dont like perch particulary!! If you have any advice that would be fantastic!!

                        Thanks very much

                        Tina x x

                          Hi Tina glad to be of help.

                          It goes a long way to making better anglers and this place will be huge place to find all sorts of stuff out.

                          As for the pole well the main thing with them is getting the thing set up right so your comfortable in the use of it.

                          There is an art in elasticating it correctly so that it works just right and the recommendations I have there are to make the elastic just tight enough so that after you have landed or played a fish the elastic just creeps back into the pole. I also tend to elasticate through just the top 2 but some of the guys here will top 3 on carp waters. If you have the spare top sets available use 1 set with a number 6 elastic for silvers number 10 set soft for Bream and Tench and carp in the winter. And for those carp crunching sessions in the summer up to a number 14-16.

                          Using a good pole lubricant is important as well.

                          The it comes down to the rigs you use and if you have spare top sets.
                          I buy all my rigs because I became lazy but that will have to change now.

                          But again using the right rig for the type of fish you expect to be catching is paramount.

                          Also as I said to the guys who fishes HDAA go speak to Colin in Angling Specialist Horsham he will gladly help with any advice you need.

                          all the best

                          Mark aka Sharkyone

                              hello tina and welcome. well having caught a 24 1/2 pounder sounds like you don't need too much advice!! although i would recommend having a bash on the pole, i have had a few doubles, biggest about 13 1/2lb/ probably not big to a specimen hunter but fishing on a pole using an 18 hook is a bit of a thril. is there not a club around by you? best way to meet people with the same common interest.
