Team Trakker

I was introduced to carp fishing in 2013 when I accompanied my boyfriend on a trip, and after seeing him catch a few I wanted to have a go myself. The following weekend I kitted myself out with the essentials and began fishing a local runs water, where I learnt the basics and the importance of carp care. Fast forward a year, and with upgraded gear I began fishing a less forgiving venue.

Being out on the bank is my happy place, for me it takes away all of the stresses of everyday life and there’s nowhere else I’d rather be. Admiring a fiery sunset or awakening to the amber glow of dawn is just priceless. Of course, catching the big girls is an amazing achievement but for me it’s more about the character and originality of the fish. I prefer to catch an old carp that could tell a few stories.

Some of my favourite captures include tempting a 34lb common from the margins, catching my first ever river carp from the Trent and landing one of my target fish which was a stunning linear. I am one of those anglers that was lucky enough to catch 3 30’s before even having a twenty (:

My current target fish is a mid-thirty ghostie, she is a beautiful carp that’s been around for a while so I would love to meet her. I’m also planning to put some more time into fishing the Trent – there’s a real element of surprise to fishing the river, as you never know what you’ll be hooked into next!

In general I keep myself to myself on the bank and at peak times I tend to avoid fishing at weekends as it’s just too busy. I often arrive on a Sunday and take some time to have a look around and if possible throughout the week I’ll fit-in an overnighter between work. Providing I have plenty of coffee and a bag or two of Wheat Crunchies I’m generally very content being on the bank.
