A carp fishing podcast, recorded by two passionate anglers.
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.
The Carp Fishing Podcast - River Monsters - Dave Little
This month we've got a great guest, none other than Dave Little or Mr Ouse as I like to call him due to his love affair with this majestic river and it's elusive carp. We delve into the history of river stockings and the challenges anglers are faced with when trying to hold a river carp, many have failed but Dave's album is busting with some incredible river monsters. Me and Mark also chew the fat as normal and cover carp retirement, particles, photo bombing and all the usual ramblings along the way. Enjoy
The Carp Fishing Podcast - Jensen Mannings - Work, Angling Life Balance
This month Mark delves into a rig that breaks the norm. He explains why he's planning on using his Sub Slider Egg Rig and his thoughts behind it! We also have the pleasure of Jensen Mannings, a local angler who's caught plenty of big carp but like many of us these days has to juggle low stocked pits and the demands of the chase with kids, a full time job and all the other life demands. The struggle is real but the drive to succeed never goes away!
Excellent podcast. Always look forward to hearing the next one at the beginning of the month. Great guest's, great hosts. Keep them coming.
New to podcasts and I’m obsessed with this one. Starting them all from the begging so I have a few to get through but I’m loving every minute
Good to hear from like minded people.
Yet Another excellent podcast. Very interesting honest and informative. So refreshing to hear experienced anglers talking about the reality of how sensitive Carp are. We now know how delicate carp are and as a result we should be taking every precaution to take care of the fish. There are lots of people who think that Carp fishing is cruel and only need half a chance to point the finger at the sport. The numbers of new anglers coming into the sport have been steadily declining over the past few years which is quite worrying.
