Carp are certainly a popular species and I do my fair share of fishing for them. Rather than pursuing weights for the sake of them, much of my carp fishing is done on venues where just catching is a success. The fish above was taken from a pool where they don’t go very big, so in effect it’s a bit of a monster! I do a fair bit on sections of the Staffs/Worcs Canal where they are like the proverbial needle in a haystack. From canals to stillwaters, you can read the blog entries HERE.
