ANGLER'S MAIL takes carp fishing seriously. And our big carp galleries are backed by TAG (The Angling Group) who have top carp fishing brands Taska, Nutrabaits and Kryston.
JOE LONGMAN had this stunning heavily-scaled mirror of 32 lb 4 oz in a fine winter haul of carp.
The 25-year-old tackled Lake Christine on Kent’s Cottington Lake and added other mirrors of 33 lb and 31 lb 2 oz plus four 20s and six doubles in a 48-hour stint.
Joe fished 20-30 yards to a bay against an island and to a marginal reedline feeding 30 Sticky Baits Krill boilies per fish.
Harlow, Essex-based Joe said: “Ten fish all came to a rod fished about 30 yards to a bay inbetween two islands. In the day I was fishing tighter to the island to get a bite and on the last day I landed six from fishing a foot or so from the island locked up.”
THE tiny day ticket Coppermill Stream on North East London’s Walthamstow complex produced this fine 22 lb 4 oz near-leather for gardener Stewart Harvey.
Edmonton-based Stewart, 52, used a Sticky Baits Krill pop-up.
Stewart said: “Others tell me there is a common in the stream that is touching 30, but I was overjoyed with this from such a small stream.”
THIS fine linear called The Don might have passed the magical 40 lb barrier for the first time ever when Steve Stephenson caught it at 40 lb 8 oz.
Steve offered Mainline Essential Cell boilies over a lightly baited area.
ANT MUSSON couldn’t have been happier to nab this superb 37 lb 14 oz common from Manton New Lake in Lincolnshire.

Selsey, The 37-year-old gas engineer, from West Sussex, was on an overnighter and fished a 20mm Manilla topped with fake tiger nut at 75 yards.

Dereham-based Jeff, 46, used a solid PVA bag filled with Sticky Baits Manilla boilies.
