In this week's issue
We’ve got the story of Nunnery Top Lake’s big mirror, J Edgar, a fish that was born on site more than 20 years ago and now weighs in excess of 40lb. We also report on the death of Avenue mirror, Big Rig. We’ve got a stunning 50lb 14oz linear from Elphicks, a new lake record for Myths Pool, Cromwell’s biggest resident and a host of other big fish from home and abroad.
We report on the UK Carp Champs semi at Orchard Place Farm, and Joe Atkinson has advice on how to catch off the top on short sessions. Paul Codman talks beautiful fish and motivation, Nathan Jackson reviews his success on Stoneacre, and James Potter reaps the rewards of fishing unfancied spots. Dan Taylor appears in the Carp-Talk Q&A, Roy Russell explains how to succeed in weed, and Crowy has got his stalking head on.
We’ve got £600-plus worth of Fox Horizon X5 rods to give away, and the RidgeMonkey junior winners are announced.
