Carpworld October 2014

In the October issue of Carpworld. We also take a look at one of the most famous waters in the country as a newcomer to Carpworld, Lee Roberts, reveals how he caught the biggest-ever fish from the venue. How often have you said, ‘I didn’t have a clue what I was in for?’ Well, that’s what Mick Price said about his adventures on a Cambridgeshire syndicate water. There’s also features from Bill Cottam, Adam Clewer, Darrell Peck and plenty more to keep you going for ages! Oh, nearly forgot, there’s part two of Mike Kav’s chat with Kevin Nash and Joe Turnbull’s Bait World and our Tackle World pages make sure that there’s lots for the bait buffs and tackle tarts to get their teeth into.


Mitch takes us on an in-depth technical tour of everything you need to know to succeed in winter, from choosing a venue to baiting strategies, and his thoughts on rigs.

Have you formulated a plan for your chosen water? Is it working? What do you do if it doesn’t? It’s all well and good getting a ticket to fish a particular water, but that’s only the beginning; you need to plan for all contingencies.

Pecky’s been on his holidays this month – to Gigantica. It was a boys away-type of trip, so did he enter into the holiday spirit or did he actually manage a bit of fishing?

Our mag-within-a mag is packed with all the news of the big-carp captures from around the world in our regular Echoes feature. There’s also a feature by Steve Briggs on his visit to Serreire, during which he caught yet another 70+ carp, an adventure on a wild and mystical lake in Hungary by Johannes Hafner, and a trip to the huge French reservoirs by Julian Jurkewitz, where he tackles the unknown. We also welcome back our old friend Tony Davies-Patrick, who starts out on a new series aptly titled New Horizons.

Current Issue: OCTOBER 2014

Issue Preview


“Many years ago, a long time before the Internet and social media, etc., finding carp waters was mainly a trial and error thing. My starting point was to buy an Ordnance Survey map and explore ‘every bit of blue’ on those maps. That was four decades ago and in those intervening years nothing has changed. My search for new and exciting waters around the world has never waned while I’ve enjoyed the most absorbing of pastimes, which is fishing for big carp.”
