THE RidgeMonkey carp tackle firm has taken on two more top anglers as it continues to expand with its exciting product ranges.


RidgeMonkey recently announced that experienced tackle developer Max Cottis has joined its fold.

And now highly respected anglers Peter Carr and Les Marsh have joined the RidgeMonkey stable as sponsored Pro anglers.

A specialist carper with a wealth of experience both home and abroad, Peter (pictured above) has caught a mind-blowing amount of huge carp. Angler’s Mail was amazed to hear the full track record for Peter…

At the last count, Peter’s current tally stood at over 600 (yes, you read that right –  SIX HUNDRED!) 40 lb-plus specimens from three different countries to a personal best in excess of 77 lb.

Les has been consistently catching big carp from a variety of venues around the England for over four decades and was  the first person to catch a 50 lb-plus carp in Yorkshire.

Les can also boast captures of Benson and The Creature from Bluebell at 58 lb-plus, Deepings’ Blackspot at a personal best and Lincolnshire record of 60 lb 5 oz… and a host of other big fish from various counties around the UK.

Peter said: “Like many anglers, since the launch of RidgeMonkey I’ve always been just as eager to scramble to the tackle shop to see for myself what the next ‘must-have’ product is like and my bivvy is already filled with many essential quality items such as the Vault, Bivvy Lite and the Advanced Boilie Crusher, amongst others!

“For me, the brand is more than ‘just products designed by carp anglers for carp anglers’, it’s also about the innovation, the passion and commitment which is reflected in every product conceived.

“To be able to help develop and push the brand further, whilst having the opportunity to input my own ideas with particular focus on some of the specialist equipment is an absolute honour and I am truly excited and looking forward to working closely with the rest of the team at RidgeMonkey.”

Les added: “I’m really looking forward to joining the team at RidgeMonkey – they already have a very good range of products for the carp angler and I’ll hopefully be able to add some of my own ideas along the way”

A RidgeMonkey spokesman said: “Peter and Les will be a big asset to the brand as we expand our range in the future, with their experience and knowledge of the equipment required by the big carp angler making both an integral part of the team.”
