Carpworld August 2014

The long, hot days of summer have really been with us over the last few weeks and the carping has slowed down as our beloved fish take advantage of a bit of sunbathing. Don’t worry though because the August Carpworld is absolutely packed with the best features and the best reviews money can buy – and we squeeze so much on a page it’ll take you ages to read it all. Take a look at what’s in store below and make sure you don’t miss out.


In this instalment of his occasional series, Frank shares his thoughts on imitation baits. How and why do they work, and what’s the best way to use them?

Keep up to date with Darrell’s progress on the bank as he takes on some of the best fish in the country. This month he talks about why he likes single hookbaits and how he nearly lost a rod in a hit-and-hold situation!

Carp fishing isn’t all about lakes you know, and if you really want to sample something different you need to take a leaf out of Dave’s book and sample the delights of fishing for carp in rivers. They’re full of big carp – as Dave found out on the Great Ouse.

PLUS . . . Mitch Smith teaches us how to get the very best from using Method mixes. You can catch really big carp on them you know! There’s a salutary lesson in safety from Stuart Roberts who tells how a lovely day on his favourite water turned into a battle of life and death. We welcome Elliott Symack back to the fold as we take a trip into the mind of one carp-angling’s most outspoken writers. Paul Forward has been tackling Burghfield but his old mate Laney beat him to the big common, one of the most sought-after carp in the country. Does he mind? Not a bit, he says!. There’s also Adam Clewer, Daren Norman, Peter Kingsbury, Bill Cottam and Raphael Khalili who’s company is making major waves in the fishery business. So, that’s it – plenty of features from big names with a few newbies thrown in for good measure! Oh, nearly forgot. In International Carper we’ve a lovely story from Julian Jurkewitz who fishes with his girlfriend on the huge French reservoirs, Arjen Uitbeijerse tells how he caught an amazing 141 fish from Rainbow, a holiday venue to check out, and our monthly big carp capture reports in Echoes. Phew!
