I don't really coarse fish still waters a great deal, apart from chasing tench, but of late have had a couple of trips to some ponds that are on my club ticket that contain a good head of carp and, as you can see, they can be rather attractive looking specimens.
This one was caught on a feeder and a comparatively light rod ,gave me a good run for my money and actually gave me a clue as to why carp fishing is so popular. Simply put....'they don't half pull hard'
Its unlikely that I'll get into serious 'mud pig' fishing (just kidding carp fans) but I does remind me of the fun I've had chasing them on my local rivers so maybe this summer, when the season opens, I'll hatch a plan.
