Whether you prefer the huge, pale, virtually scaleless, bloaters of France or
the dark, scaly, classic English thoroughbreds really it is down to the
individual. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder they say, and never did this
phrase carry more weight than when talking about carp and women. Long
ones, short ones, fat or thin, there is an angler that will find every variant
So, when compiling a ‘minters’ issue please remember that although I
may look upon these great carp with admiration, you may not see the
beauty I do. Then again perhaps everyone is not as picky as me, when it
comes to women I mean. As for carp, I love them all.
Cover story this month comes from Carl Adcock and what a carp this one
is, all 59lb of it. Is it a minter? Well Carl and I think it is!! Scott Rodgers is up
next. Scott has been there and got the T-shirt for sure. He has been fishing
for five decades, from Savay to the River Trent and everywhere in between.
This article shows a favourite fish from each decade, his success is
legendary and he is still as keen as he ever was.
Florence and Craig Sansom, father and daughter and some minters for
certain. Triston Cooper is back again this month with the second half of his
amazing session. Chris Connaughton tackles Furzebray Lakes with
incredible effect, landing some very large, amazing looking carp, whilst
Richard Shenton looks back at the last Autumn and Winter and how a
change in approach proved the downfall of a host on minters. You could not
have a magazine devoted to minters without including something from
Stoneacres, thankfully Sam Causer and ‘The Bearded Lady’ have just what
we need. Add to these loads of carpy humour, all the latest tackle reviews
