Casual Carper

Hi, I’m the casual carper and I will be sharing my top tips and match sessions with you. I’m a thirty something and I’ve been carp fishing for years but since having kids my time is limited. My aim is to get the most out of my carp session when I can, only by being prepared can I get big bags of fish in short irregular sessions. My sessions are usually 4-5 hours and my aim for the 2015 season is to catch over 100lb of carp in 5 hours with 2 rods (or maybe 3 if I’ve got the lake to myself!). Last season I peaked at 78lb in four and a half hours and I know I can do better.

I will be filling this site with reviews of the latest carp baits and rigs so you too can get the most out of your day sessions. You’ll find most of the information over on my You tube channel where I’ll be uploading every session I go on along with videos of rigs and other helpful bits.

  6. Hello Matt,
    I like your style,
    About me: Angling all my life, at last back to our cottage in Portugal with a most promising water nearby. I was in the British Carp Study Group just after its formation now at 85 years old l find l have left my boilie throwing stick back in South Africa so was looking at designs in order to make one here when l came across your name, etc.

    Being so early in the carp scene l had a few years start on our emigrating to South Africa and used my home made boiles to great effect before they caught on. I might even be tempted to order one from you in due course.

    Keep up the good work in keeping the sport alive,

    Don Wittich
