Our latest session saw us head
south to Dumfries and Galloway in search of some Carp action on light gear. All
too often many anglers are guilty of setting out ‘over gunned’ for these fish
but there is no better way to fully enjoy the pure dogged power of these fish than
to target them on the Quivertip.
Fishing at close range with
pellet baits, paired up with a Method feeder, placed in the margins or under an
overhanging tree and awaiting the rod slamming over must be one of the most exciting ways to catch Carp.
After a slow start with only a
few Bream, Roach and Ide showing interest, we finally found the Carp and
thereafter it was non-stop sport. We didn’t manage any big fish, the best being
around the 8lb mark, but on light gear you don’t really need them.
Commercial Coarse fishing may not be everyone’s cup of tea. However, it can be great fun and although it might not be the most challenging fishing, I thoroughly recommend you give it a go. Even if just once.
