Warm weather brings the Carp out in droves

The warm weather has certainly made the Carp come on the feed all over Cambridgeshire the past couple of weeks.

St. Ives Tackle Shop's Paul Fitzjohn fished an overnight session on his syndicate water and was rewarded with a brace of 30lb Mirrors falling within 30 minutes of each other.

Nashbait Citruz 15mm Pink pop ups fished over a bed of St Ives Tackle Hemp and Maize were enough to do the trick for him.

Paul Marriot had his first session of the year on his local club water and it turned into an absolute belting session. A 28lb Mirror and a 16lb common soon graced his net whilst using his favourite Krill wafters on an IQ D Rig.

It was a good week for anyone called Paul with Paul Sellens' visit to his local syndicate in Earith bringing Mirrors of 19, 23 and 24lb. A PCF snowman fished over the magic hemp and maize proving successful yet again.

For more information on the fishing available in the area, then either pop into St Ives Tackle Shop or call them on 01480 468196.
