How fortunate we are that our passion takes us to the water’s edge with friends and especially our children. For me fishing for carp is a journey of learning & sharing knowledge. Fishing is very educational, entertaining and through it we can begin to understand many things about life.
First & foremost we must respect nature… it’s vital for the future of angling. Preserving the quality of rivers, lakes and ponds, understanding its rythm while respecting the fauna and flora. I’ve spent so many good times at the water’s edge listening to the singing birds, watching as the sun rises and warms the atmosphere. Or a sunset, heralding the end of day and the beginning of a night which we hope will be hectic with carp takes.
But also we must learn to observe… jumping carp, small movements on the surface of the water which will help us to put more carp on the mat.
All this reminds me of a 48 hours session spent with my son. It was very hot but with good observation, experience and a good bait from Shaun Harrison we put a few carp in the landing net. Beautiful photos and really good times at the waters edge.
Fishing for carp gives us magical moments forever etched in our memory. Have fun, respect nature, observe carefully & be confident in your approach and your bait and the rest will follow.
See you soon at the water’s edge.
