We most certainly do. I am on TodberBig Hayes for a 72hr end of the month. I have been on a local syndicate this year with little reward thus far, where are you fishing?

Ex carp fisherman from Kent here, who could only ever catch large tench - never caught a carp! Found it easier to be a chub fisherman who could catch chub:D
But catching big chub isn't any easier than carp fishing, you really need to know your river craft to consistently catch the big ones.

Ex carp fisher but not a bivvy and buzzers man, think more Chris Yates but with more modern gear.

I photographed this chap catching a carp the other week
.................I'm a river man miself, barbel & pike but I do a bit of carp angling during the closed season, there's nothing like surface fishing for getting the adrenalin going :D

As I said in this thread (a few more photos if your interested) ......just a little bit of me thought ' I hope it f*****g chokes ya' :LOL:

I noticed lots of fish near the surface of my local boating lake, big dark ones and some orange ones, within easy reach of the 'shore' for anyone with a net.
Just like this forum, it made me wonder why people sit around 'fishing' I wonder who will respond with "oh, the irony!"

Not a proper carp angler, in fact not much as an agler at all right now as I have only found the time to go once in the last two years.
Not great at sitting around waiting so tend to prefer float fishing, but often have a carp rod out too just for the halibut :)coat:) but personal best is as a rather measly 6lb.
