A carp fishing podcast, recorded by two passionate anglers.
53. The Carp Fishing Podcast - Post Christmas Rambling Mike & Mark
This month is a smaller than usual episode as Mike sadly managed to break his memory card that held our guest interview we had pre recorded and ready to go. So instead of missing a month we still chew the fat, put the world to rights and rattled through a few listeners questions. Enjoy and we'll be back at the end of January as normal with a full episode.
52. The Carp Fishing Podcast - Jake "The Heron" Hughes
Jake Hughes aka Jake the Heron is this month's special guest. Mike caught up with Jake at the historic Toadless Leather Pit, a complex of lakes steeped in both carp fishing history and Jake's own angling life. Tales of unknown biggies, winter bait ups and creative inspirations were just a few topics covered but what stood out was how Jake goes about his business, his way. Mike and Mark also discuss winter baiting approaches and take a few listeners' questions to get the grey matter working. Enjoy.
51. The Carp Fishing Podcast - Jamie Smith - Unsung Hero
Jamie Smith is this months special guest, a modest man but one that deserves alot of credit for the impact he's had on Carp Angling since the birth of his now cult, CP products brand. Many brands to this day still copy his early designs, testament to his thought process with product ideas decades before they became mass market produced. Few can claim to be true innovators but for me, Jamie sits proudly in that small group of talent. In recent years Jamie has purposely shy'd away from the limelight, preferring to focus on his work and customer satisfaction. His rods gather dust but his contribution to angling is still available for all to enjoy through his engravings, carvings, kettles and lareg scale artwork. Jamie delves into his colourful life and we listened in awe.
In addition we delve into a French trip disaster and get to answer some listeners questions. Enjoy.
The Carp Fishing Podcast - Alfie Russell Special
This month we have the pleasure of Alfie Russell as our special guest. Alfie is extremely humble considering his album of incredible carp. He's down to earth, honest, hard working and despite a young family he still finds time to target some very special carp. As you'll hear Alfie's passion for angling runs deep. We chat about social media, mental health, the concept of paid angling and sponsorships as well as some tales of past urban campaigns with rods stashed in guitar cases! Enjoy.
49. The Carp Fishing Podcast - Mike & Mark
This month is a smaller episode I'm afraid due to one reason or another but we've still got a carpy fix in podcast form to digest. Me and Mark chat through carp strains and discuss how hard it is for individual carp to stand out these days from the masses of carp that are now available to the angler. We also chat through some issues with Mark's baby fish and Mike recalls a horror story that happened to him a few weeks ago! enjoy
48. The Carp Fishing Podcast - The Wild Man - Finn Lewis
Sorry for the slight delay this month, the truth is me and mark went fishing but August’s podcast is now live. This month we have Finn Lewis on as our guest, aka the Wild Man. Finn is an man whos so connected to nature, a real outdoors chap who’s also an extremely passionate angler. Me and Mark also have our usual ramblings over a cuppa or two. Thanks for the support as always and lovely reviews, they never fail to put smiles on our faces, we read them all.
Easily the best carp fishing podcast out there
For me, this is easily the best podcast related to carp fishing that there is at the moment. Real, unpretentious and with such a wide variety of really interesting guests it leaves me wanting more every month. Keep up the great work Mike and Mark! Edit: I think Marks New Year Resolution should be to see if he can do a podcast without saying crikey! 😂
Good to hear from like minded people.
Yet Another excellent podcast. Very interesting honest and informative.
Always learn something from the podcasts. 👍
Excellent podcast. Always look forward to hearing the next one at the beginning of the month. Great guest's, great hosts. Keep them coming.
