As title says.

Where do you normally fish, PB etc. My PB is a 25 1/4 lb mirror caught from Fryerning fisheries in essex. Still waiting to break that magic 30 mark, hopefully this year.

What is Frant like mate?. Can you night fish there? I work in tonbridge so could be a good place to do a quick overnighter between shifts in the summer months.

I'm a carp fisherman, haven't been that much this year though.

A local lake to me that not many people know of have Grass Carp to just over 23lb
. Not that I've caught one yet, my word their hard to get, in the summer they swim right on the surface just to really annoy the hell out of you

Been into my carp fishing for years. Used to travel all over but tend to stick to local syndicate waters now and do shorter sessions.
Pic of one of my fave fish, apologies for the quality of the pic, and the dodgy clothing...
