The treatment of carp is paramount when on the bank, carrying them from the water to your mat, weighing them and releasing them. Thankfully the information on how to do this safely is more readily available than ever, and now, here at Wychwood Carp we’ve released a range of carp care products that make this as safe as ever.
The Wychwood Extricator range has traditionally been the infamous 6, 9 and 10ft rods, adorned with timeless cork butts or the stealth black EVA. Introducing the new, upgraded Extricator Plus range of rods…
The brand-new Riot rod range will be hitting the shelves in the coming weeks, and despite their classy aesthetics, anti-frap tip ring and full slim cork or EVA handle option, these rods will not break the bank.
Famed for impressive rod ranges, best-selling reels, a market-leading brolly range and innovative design throughout, Wychwood Carp is once again about to set the tackle market ablaze with their biggest-ever product launch to date.
Winter fishing can be cold, dark and miserable, unless you’re prepared for the conditions. Along with some sensible, performance clothing, which Wychwood has you well and truly covered for with market leading performance jackets and layers that are 20% more efficient than anything else tested, a head torch is vital.
There has been lots of talk about boosting baits in recent years but one thing I have not seen much information on is how these ‘boosting’ procedures effect other aspects of the bait rather than just the attraction of them. The most obvious example of this is when you see someone complaining about the lack of buoyancy in a particular pop up and then you find out they have had them sitting in 2 inches of liquid for 6 months so I will start with how I boost my pop ups.
Rather than a do’s and don’ts style pop-up tips piece, I’m going to share with you how I fish pop-ups, why how and where and give you some useful advice to think about. I’m not saying you need to rush out and change your components, switch your rigs up and change the bait you use, but this is more of a food for thought piece that may open your eyes and get you thinking differently about your pop-up fishing.
