  • I have been asked to write about my thoughts on short session fishing and watercraft. Now I don’t profess to be an expert on watercraft by any stretch of the imagination. I think of watercraft as being that 6th sense; understanding the carp, knowing where they are when there are no signs of activity and almost being able to pre-empt or predict where they are going to feed. This is an area of weakness for me as I can recount many occasions where I have got this wrong. However one thing that I really enjoy with my fishing is observation.

  • As It’s still quite cold with the nights frosty and the water temperature low, choosing the right water is paramount. I find the shallower water's better with the carp well catchable, especially with a lighter more bitty approaches meaning scaling things down and using smaller baits, naturals etc..

  • Around 4 years ago I made the decision to start filming my sessions whilst out on the bank after toying with the idea for quite some time. If I’m honest, at the time I didn’t really have a set in stone plan in what I wanted to achieve but I did have a few ideas bouncing around in my head and now 4 years on, I am glad I made the decision to keep producing my content.

  • We are now firmly into our second national lockdown of the year. Unlike the first lockdown fishing has been given the green light this time around under certain guidelines. With non-essential travel and long journeys being discouraged a lot of people can no longer just go to any venue they fancy fishing or would normally fish but this doesn’t mean you can’t go fishing. Many of us will have access to stretches of river or canal within a fairly close proximity to where we live and sometimes these are even within walking distance, perfect alternative venues to anyone who can no longer travel to fish.

  • With the country in lockdown, I thought I’d reflect back on a 24 hour trip last spring; mid-April 2019. It was my first day trip of the new ticket that started on April 1st, having done a work night the week before.

  • We may be facing a period of uncertainty with fishing off the cards for the foreseeable, but that doesn’t mean we have to stop thinking about, researching and preparing for when we’re no longer grounded. The weather seems to have picked up and undoubtedly the carp are thoroughly enjoying their sudden sense of careless freedom. A couple of us at Wychwood HQ can’t wait to get the stalking kit out the garage and feed those margin dwelling carp when the country is back in the swing of things.

  • I’ve always been one that loves the change in seasons here in England, there’s something about a crisp, sunny Autumnal morning that I really love and it always leads to a change in the way I go about my fishing. Ditching the surface gear and concentrating on putting a bed of bait down and trying to tempt a few decent fish before winter sets in, Novermber 2017 was one of those months where everything went my way. With frost most nights and bright days, the fish just seemed to love it and I was only managing one day a week at the time, or an extra half day if I was lucky.
