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.

Spring weather Perfect zigging conditions!

Check out this awesome spring weather we seem to be having - Perfect zigging conditions! A section of soaked Ziggaz foam just below the surface can be lethal when fish in accompaniment with Upper Layers Riser Pellet.

Nash man, Lee Birch, absolutely caned it at the weekend using zig techniques whilst everyone else sat blanking with bottom baited rigs. These five stunners all fell victim to the zig approach on a day when most had blanked!
