Big Carp Magazine

12 issues per year Write Review From £2.50 per issue For over 20 years Big Carp has been the serious carp anglers favourite read. Written and read by the world’s top anglers, dedicated to English thoroughbreds, a history of excellence.

The UK’s only proper carp mag with articles from Britain’s top carp anglers past, present and future. Aimed at the angler who not only wants to know what catches but why! Many exclusives from anglers all over the country, in depth technical features on baits and rigs, on the bank interviews with successful anglers both well known and unknown. Life histories of famous anglers, monthly prizes to win holidays tackle and bait. Exclusive diaries Rob Maylin and his friends. Keith Jenkins monthly column “Made in England” featuring the biggest and most beautiful carp caught that month. Big Carp is for the angler who wants more out of his fishing than just catching fish, it is for the angler who wants to know the history of his chosen quarry and the venue it resides in. Big Carp has something for everyone, from the novice angler keen to learn the latest edges from the top anglers to the season pro just keeping abreast of the country’s most important captures.

OTBT8 –THE ADRENALINE RUSH!!
Once again the first thing I must do is thank everyone for their stories. Without these we would have no mag! What makes these stories different from the ones we usually publish are the venues: No comfy swims, no paths at all in most cases, no neatly trimmed-back trees, just an overgrown tangle of branches and brambles in most cases. The sheer effort involved in consistently doing this type of fishing is beyond the comprehension of most anglers, yet I am meeting and chatting to more and more that have moved to the dark side. Why? Simple… the rewards are incredible, the adrenaline rush immense when one of these uncaught beasts is finally tamed, and there at your feet lies the holy grail of carp fishing, an unnamed, never before caught carp, a truly wild beast, a warrior that until now has never seen an angler.
