Choose life. Choose a lake. Choose a swim. Choose a bait. Choose a rig. Choose sleepless nights under the stars. Choose the nocturnal music of branches creaking in the wind, leaves whispering, and the eerie night-calls of owls and wildfowl. Choose bright moons shattered in the rippling surface of lakes, and purple skies at sunset perfectly mirrored. Choose silent mist-shrouded pools at dawn. Choose visions of white-flowering waterlilies turning green-gold in the half-light. Choose the flashing bronze flanks of carp, twisting below the surface, on the edge of visibility. Choose a heightened heart-rate. Choose an emotional rollercoaster. Choose the psychological assault-course of planning, watching, locating, preparing, casting and waiting. Choose the endless hours of strung-out anticipation. Choose the rush of striking, hooking, fighting, and landing (or losing) the fish. Choose to walk the tightrope between desperate failure and the adrenaline-inducing, life-enhancing triumphant high of success. Choose life. Choose obsession. Choose Carp Fishing.

Nick Burrage - Cold Nights, Early bites

First bite of this weeks run of stunner's, quite unusual in the way it has a two tone belly?? (Never seen one like this before)
All taken on Gardner end tackle including Mugga size 6 and Trickster 20lb silt hooklink; they seemed a bit moody but a bed of Trigga Ice did the trick!!

My morning 31lb 15oz common!
Taken after a move across the lake; Mugged and Triggered.... Bet she didn't see that coming??

Carp care....
