  7. To be honest carp will eat anything and everything so my suggestion is to try different bait! but the matrix boilie works well any where! i like fishing with different types of boilies but my favourite has to be mainline - fusion boilies. Try as many as u can but beware not to use to many different types in 1 session! if u catch dont swap to the same bait on ll rods always try something different u never know! Martin (FaTzy)
  8. Any1 know of any carp lakes in ireland (north or south)?? was thinkin about going to see my family over there thought i wud do a spot of fishing as well! any ideas??? Martin (FaTzy)
  9. Hi to be honest with ya i agree with dales but most fisheries do not mind what you use as long as you treat the fish with great care! as long as you and your son are comfy then it shudnt matter!!! the best thing u can do is find the lakes u wish to fish and do a few days there and when u both are ready to do the night ask if the will allow tents!! You wont need a 2 man bivvy if you travel light but there are some bivvys you can get 2 in, with a squeze! i have seen so many different bivvy/tents on the bank to last me a life time! dont forget u can get a brolly system for cheap as well which
  10. To be honest the last few replys are bang on! u need to get use to match fishing!! but i know how u feel cos my lil brohter of 11 is in the same boat and i have tried to tell him to master float fishing before carping! there is so much more to fishing then just catching! as u get older u will understand! but if u want to catch carp u need to go somehwere that they will teach u how to fish! give it time and u will et there! its not easy as every1 makes out! it have taken me 2 1/2 years to catch 1 fish from my local lakes but thats wat u gotta deail with! not all the top fisher men/women
  11. you could always have a look on this site http://www.scottishcarpgroup.co.uk/

  13.

  14. Just been looking at the rod licence price and cant believe that its gone up by £1 but i dont mind payin it as long as somethin is being done around the country! The link to the page is ... http://www.environment-agency.gov.uk/homea...hing/31497.aspx Tight lines Martin
  15. Just been looking around and here a gd site that might help! but it explains how to make ur own, so depending on how long u boil the boilie u shud be able to make some bottom bait of your own! http://www.mainline-baits.com/articles/JKHookBaits.php Martin
  16. still a bit sleepy then!! cant wait for them to wake up!
  17. i agree with u on that 1 Rob but to be honest i buy it fresh/frozen and end up air drying them out any ways but its my choice how many i dry out!! Martin
  18. Nice 1 well done! how long was the fight?? wish i was out there now but not having a job is a bit of a bummer but hey i can do as much as possible. just gotta find some money for the bait!
  19. how much did it go for in the end m8??
  20. To be honest it depends on if u can get the fish feeedin or not! if u find the right spot then gr8! but remember that there was another group of fisherman/woman just left only 6 - 12 hours b4 u got there so there wil be loads of bait in the water! if they caught try and find out what they fished on, maybe the person running the lake will be able to help by lettin u know what is working and isnt! Maize and hemp are the best option for any country! Martin
  21. if i get nay u will be the first to know elton! i am always up for giving things ago!
  22. any 1 tried it yet?? i think i mite pick some up next week to give it a go!
  23. Make sure u get some thermols they do wonders! Loads of hot drinks too and dont be affraid to jump into ur sleeping bag for a bit to keep warm! i dont use a ground sheet but a few ppl i go with do and they seem to be warmer then me so i think i will start using a ground sheet as well! have fun, but the weather is startin to turn a bti now so it shudnt be as cold! u missed all the really cold weather well down here in the south any ways! Martin
  24. Gd luck to the man! i have heard he caught it at 86lb or something like that a few months/years back. Would love to have it on the end of my rod!!
