Carp Fishing Info

Carp Fishing Info, a website dedicated to Carp Fishing Information, Tips, Advice, Venues, Latest News, Deals, New Baits, New tackle, in fact all things relevant to Carp Fishing. Carp Fishing Info (CFI), so why are we here, there are a huge number of websites out there dedicated to fishing, sea fishing, salmon fishing, course fishing in general and my favourite carp fishing, I designed and built the website for The Angling Trust Wessex Region Marine, a part of Angling Trust, I built the website after a discussion with the committee and as a way of paying back to the sport that has given me so much pleasure over the year. I go sea fishing about 5 times a year, holidays and the occasional trips out with a good friend when he gets his boat out to visit the Needles (IOW). My passion for fishing is immeasurable, from my first trip with my father with old second hand tackle which broke under the strain of our first fish, which he jumped in after (And caught) to a trip of the coast of Scotland in my youth on a family holiday in a converted life boat, and the thrill of not only catching but bring home the catch of fresh mackerel to cook for lunch. But as I said my passion is carp fishing, the anticipation of the wait, have I got my presentation correct, will the next fish beat my personal best (PB) and most important of all, when can I fit in my next carp fishing trip. So, what do I need to start fishing or if you, like me want to become a specimen carp angler then where do you start and what do you need. Well for under £40.00 you can get all the gear you need to start fishing, so what are the basic items you need:- Carp Rod 9ft Carp Reel Carp Fishing Line Barbless Hooks Landing Net with Handle Fish Unhooking Mat Carp Disgorger Loaf of bread for bait You will also need a fishing license if you are over the age of 12. So now you have the equipment, where can I fish and how much will it cost. What we are hoping to do is to speak to local tackle shops and suppliers to bring you some cracking deals and offers to get you up and running and catching Carp. Visit Carp Fishing Info...
