His string of huge fish for more than a decade, including a record breaker of 55lb 13oz from Wraysbury, besides being the first angler to catch two different English fifties from different waters, has put Terry right at the top of the tree.

A prolific writer and author of two outstanding books In Pursuit of the Largest and Still Searching, Terry’s writing is consumed by a huge army of fans both young and old.

He has made numerous TV and DVD appearances, the latest being ‘Quest for Black Eye’, beside headlining at carp shows and carp anglers’ get-togethers. His animated open style of talking is so infectious to watch, making him one of the best speakers around.

His catches are truly breathtaking with many carp of over 40lb, plus a number of 50-pounders to his credit. His special angling talent has tripped over into other species with him banking big barbel, perch, dace, grayling, etc. along the way.

Rob has been actively involved in carp fishing at lots of different levels over the last 20 years. Born in Oswestry, he began his fishing life on the pits around the English / Welsh border, progressing to the well-known waters of the Midlands when he moved to Wolverhampton to begin life as a qualified solicitor.

It was in the early 1990s when Rob’s carping career took a dramatic turn. Through his friendship with Simon Crow, the lads created a bait firm. This led to writing articles in carp magazines as well as an involvement with the Carp Society as a regional organiser and eventually as a governor. In 1996 he partnered Crowy to win the first ever World Carp Cup; an event which triggered Rob’s creation of the British Carp Angling Championships in 1998.

Now a regular face as a Sky Sports presenter, Rob was the brains behind the first ever carp fishing television series titled The Carp Show, which aired at the turn of the millennium and ran for four series. He was also the first British carper to land 70-pounders from two different countries (France and Germany). He has co-authored two books and been a regular face in the carp magazines around Europe for many years. Today he works as an angling consultant for Fox International and is a volunteer member of the Predation Action Group committee.

Inducted: March 2008

A quite extraordinary angler and major influence in the sport for the last 35 years through his catches and writings. Rod pioneered the use of particle or mass baits for carp fishing in the early 1970s, he also realised the importance of highly nutritional boiled baits.

Rod introduced the general angling public to the ‘Spod’ and ‘Throwing stick’ through his marvellous book, Rod Hutchinson’s Carp Book published in 1981.

His exploits at Redmire, various lakes in Kent, Savay and later at Lac De Cassien, France alone has made him one of the most enduring and pathfinding anglers ever to appear on the scene.

Rod Hutchinson easily takes his place in Carp-Talk’s Carp Fishing Hall of Fame and today he is still catching the whackers both home and abroad.
