having been caught a thousand times
on the way up. I do agree totally with
Lee on his comments though,
although I realise we need a greater
amount of targets to fill a greater
number of anglers’ needs, there is a
trend amongst the newer breed to
expect a huge carp, rather to earn,
deserve and appreciate one. Everything can now be bought, but that
shouldn’t include the carp; they have
to be earned.
There are some really fantastic
looking ‘proper’ big carp in the country at the moment, fish I would dearly
like to catch, but I won’t have time to

humanly possible to bounty hunt all
the jewels in the way that we used to;
there are just too many, and surely
this is a good thing, a fantastic thing,
because, as honoured and cherished
as those old warriors were, you have
to feel a bit sorry for them sometimes
when you can buy a carp fishing book
and nearly every story inside is about

Probably the most famous of the recently departed, but there are plenty more
stepping up to the mark.
take a statistician weeks to compile a
list of carp in excess of 45lbs that are
now cruising around in UK waters,
and years ago I could count them on
one hand in about ten seconds. Obviously the impact of each individual
fish will be lesser as a result, but it
won’t hurt them to be able to stay
below the radar for a bit longer, and,
hopefully, a few of these fish will have
the chance to really surge ahead and
become a new British record without
