In this week's issue
We've got a further six UK fifties in this week’s mag, plus the nominees for the 2016/17 Regional Carp Anglers of the Year awards - who are your winners?
We speak to the queen of German carp angling, Claudia Darga, in her first UK interview, and lift the lid on under-the-radar big-carp venue, the Dark Park. Tom Maker starts a hunt for Linear’s lunkers, and John Kneebone talks ‘Golden Oldies’. Mike Salisbury looks back on his time on an Essex park lake, Jeroen Albers has a memorable trip to Rainbow Lake, Alex Shields stalks his way to success, and Ben Wales visits Westmoor Farm. Simon Crow takes on Spitfire Pool, Steve Spurgeon reveals how he succeeds on overnighters, Stu Lennox covers high-attract hookbaits, and Julian Cundiff talks ‘glugging and glazing’.
We’ve got loads of prizes up for grabs, including two Tackle Tracker devices, stacks of Nutcracker goodies from Urban Bait, and pods and indicators from Cygnet.
