I have been fishing for carp for 35years +.

Favourite venue. Anywhere quiet really, over the years I have been fortunate enough to fish some of the most beautiful carp lakes in the country. Some have been right mind teasers, which is what I really like, a challenge from the carp and the water they reside in.

Style/approach. Depends on the situation; having an open mind is what brings success I think, I never go in with preconceived ideas. Yes I will listen to the locals, but I like to build up a picture in my own mind of how I can nail the fish. I guess that comes with age as well. I have got a few refined rigs that are my main stay and I can adjust to suit, one thing is for sure my hooks are always sharp! You need to know where they are feeding to catch consistently; the rest can be quite easy then, well sometimes LOL!

Fav bait. I am lucky in that I have over the years rubbed shoulders with some good bait heads; I used to buy bait off Keith in the 80’s, proper good gear, he knew then what made a bait work and why, never come across a mind like his who has taught me so much, and he’s still learning, so long may I know him. I have been involved with development with him, and in fact there will soon be a very special little number cropping up in store, old skool!

Memorable session. That would be a tale of 5 40’s fishing with Keith and Dave his son, imagine the situation fishing with only one rod each and all three of us playing forties at the same time. We went and caught, did what no one had ever done on this water then or ever since. That was bait, simple as that three different areas and they just seemed to be looking for it. Its great when you are mixing with good mates, swapping ideas and all wanting each other to have a result. We certainly did that thirty-six hours, we had over twelve between all of us thirties, forties, awesome and that wasn’t including a massive leather that Dave caught twice in the same session…………get Keith to talk to you about it over a coffee he’ll have you in stitches.

Hinders Elips Pellets
Steve Beale (Milton Keynes)
Hinders pellets great for Barbel and Chub.

I’ve used hinders off and on over the past 12 years with fantastic results.
I find them especially effective early season and again when the rivers are low .
Combined with a small PVA bag

C Food 5kg Bait Bundle
ALAN BOND (Harlesden)
Hinders C food bait bundle

Have always held Hinders particles and bait in high regard . The C food is quality and I am sure it will catch . I’m fishing a very difficult water at present with very little coming out at all but I have confidence in the C food and that it will catch before too long . I also enjoy watching Chris (Carp King ) in his very good humoured fishing adventures and to coin a phrase “if it’s good enough for him.” Very impressed with the quality of the bait . Thankyou Mr Jarrett and team .

Great stuff.

After blanking a few times on the trusty luncheon meat, I needed a change. 1st night using, couple of chub and a just shy of 9lb barble.

Hinders Mini Combo

Great service

Original order dispatched next day but Hermes had some kind of 'major issue' which meant it still hasn't arrived but a contact to Hinders got a replacement order sent out straight away which arrived by TNT next day no problem. We'll done Hinders, not your issue but you resolved it! Thanks!
