Jamie has over 30 years experience fishing solely for Carp in the UK & abroad.
“These days you can join a venue such as Wellington Country Park and if you know what you are doing catch 25 x 40s in a season.
Most of the waters that I have caught big fish in had less than 25 fish swimming about in total and maybe one or two really big carp.
One such lake had around seven carp in 90 plus acres of lake. Numbers can be judged in modern carp fishing but they are certainly not the be-all and end-all, sometimes it is simply the journey that takes you there. “
