My name is Simon Fieldstead. I love my carp fishing, although most of the time my Mrs would say that I just go camping to get away from her. This is partially true, but in the main I'm a carp angler on a part time basis. Carp fishing is my passion. I could talk about it for hours on end. This is why I decided to record a carp fishing podcast and to see if anyone will listen. I am not going to proclaim to being good at it. I like to think I'm not bad, but I am by no means at the top of my game. So in this podcast I will most likely chat about my experiences, funny stories (at least I think they're funny), places I've been, fish I've caught, tactics, things that annoy me (there are lots of these) and I'll probably ask the listeners for tips to help with my future angling.

Episode 5 - Eat Well, Catch Well
It is my belief that you don't just have to eat bad food on the bank because it's convenient. Don't get me wrong, I am still partial to the odd Pot Noodle or cheese and ham toasties. But I like to think that we can still eat a decent meat and two veg...

Episode 2 - Keep it a Secret
For me, success in carp fishing comes with preparation, patients and a little bit covert pre-baiting. In this episode I talk about the importance of keeping your hard work a secret. Because before you know it someone will definitely start fishing on...

Very good podcast
Very interesting to hear from someone who isn’t pushing products and admits that he isn’t the best at carp fishing. Keep it up mate, I listen to these on my way to and from work in the lockdown and it’s keeping me going at the moment 👍🏻
