Best moment: This is easy. Catching the countries biggest carp from a stalking situation and watching it make the mistake from within a tree top.
I have been big carp fishing since I was 14 and the fire still burns strongly. My perfect setting is a big wild over grown pit with no other anglers around. The biggest buzz i get is catching unknown big carp that may never have been held before. I have fished every type of venue from heavily stocked to extremely low stock massive inland seas.
Nothing makes me feel more alive than fishing on the end of a big Southerly on a massive pit. I have been lucky enough to catch some of the most sought after carp in the south during my time as a carp angler. I am passionate about carp fishing and to me it is a way of life rather than a hobby.
