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.
