Rare Carp Special Issue

As you will imagine from the title, we’ve got some very special carp to share with you this month. Let’s start with Craig Runham who made his debut in last month’s issue with the first instalment of his adventures on the 350-acre pit, aka Theale Lagoon. This huge gravel pit on the outskirts of Reading has received very little pressure over the years and even less publicity, but the lid has blown right off last month with the start of Craig’s epic adventures. Well let me tell you, this month we have the ‘crème de la crème’ of unspoilt proper English thoroughbreds from Theale and a couple of other venues never written about… A fantastic scoop for Big Carp!

Well, it doesn’t get much better than that. Or does it? Listen to this… Carpin’ Rags Rob called me up, and he’s fishing another unknown quantity, a 170-acre water park, stock unknown, rumours many, but sightings of commons over forty and a mirror over 50. Rob had been asked by a very secretive member to photograph an unknown 40-plus common; they had a chat and it turned out that Marc (Mr Secret) has been quietly pulling them out and keeping quiet. One thing led to another and I persuaded Marc to tell us all about it and some of his other monsters. Marc has been travelling around the country over the past ten years or so, fishing waters low stocked, unknown and unpublished. And on his travels, guess what he’s been catching? Some very rare carp indeed. In fact this is not the first time Marc has caught an unknown 40-plus common and not told anyone! Truth is Marc has caught 40-plus commons from half a dozen UK venues topped by a common of 58lb 2oz. Prepare to have your eyes opened to some very rare carp from waters rarely, if ever, publicised, such as Longreach in Cambridge, Brogborough in Bedfordshire, the River Trent, Swarkstone Reservoir, the A1 Pits, Scout Lake, Baden and the water park! Join Marc on his travelling adventures, off the beaten track in search of monster carp.
