Big-Carp Mind-Set Winter Fishing
Ramping up Dave Levy’s Total Carp exposure, we have managed to secure his Big Carp Mindset into every issue for 2018. He starts off by detailing his findings on winter fishing, and some parts may just surprise you!
There’s something about catching a carp in the winter that’s really special; not only do they look better at this time of the year but they are generally bigger too. So when most anglers are tucked up in the warm, it’s only the brave who venture out in search of a proper winter carp.
The Power Of Paste
No matter where you fish or how big the carp you are targeting are, the anglers in the know have something to say about using paste!
"Numerous things have been said and written about the use of boilie paste but hardly anybody uses it when fishing for carp."
WIN - New Avid Carp ACR 12000 Reels
Start 2018 with a brand-new set of three reels from giant tackle company Avid Carp.
"We first encountered the brand-new exciting reel launch from Avid Carp a few months back. We liked it so much that we simply had to figure out a way to get a set in one of our readers’ hands."
WIN - Tom Forman's Go-To Winter Presentation
In this month’s Rig Anatomy we break down Tom Forman’s favoured presentation for when bites are hard to come by, and now you can win everything to use it yourself!
"Focusing around high levels of attraction Tom Forman’s rig on page XX is a fantastic presentation to give a go when all else seems to be failing, and it works for big and small carp all the same."
The Daytime Dweller
With just a single day at his disposal, GAV WALDING reveals how to make your time on the bank count and capitalise on short sessions.
Having suffered the first frost of the year some weeks back, colder nights, quieter banks and harsher fishing conditions are upon us. The nights are well and truly drawing in and the daytime hours to be out on the bank catching are narrowing greatly.
WIN - Spotted Fin Bait Bundle
Get a jump this season with a mega bait bundle from Spotted Fin!
"Each winner will be given an all-encompassing bait bundle. What’s more, we have five to give away, so don't miss out!"
12 Shades Of Grey
Total Carp follows the main man behind Cypography, ELLIOTT GRAY, to see exactly what he gets up to each month.
"After pulling off the big lake, following my capture of Beaky at over 40lb, I’ve been pretty much flat out with Cypography, so that’s taken up all my time. However, I did manage one chance to get out fishing for myself, at the pit just down the road from my house. As regular readers may already know, it’s a pit I’ve been dabbling on a little throughout the year and I’ve had some really lovely fish from it, including some real scaly stunners. So, with only the one chance of getting out for my own fishing, it seemed the obvious place to head, giving me a reasonable chance of catching."
