|COARSE FISHING WITH THE ESSEX ANGLER|
Steve (Carpsava) originates from right here in the UK. At the age of 7 he discovered the great passion for angling by fishing at weekends in Surrey.After fishing the River Arun near lockwood many times without catching,he and his friend discovered a pond where they could actually " see the fish ".
Although their first attempt at fishing this newly discovered pond was somewhat of a dissaster they did'nt give up.They returned the following week and finally began to catch fish.Roach,Rudd,Gudgeon and even Crucian Carp.In Steve's words :-
" It was the capture of a few of these Golden, shining, hard fighting creatures, which fused my special passion for carp fishing. For me there is nothing more special than this whole extravaganza we call Carp Fishing ".
Steves favourite baits are sweetcorn and maize although he suggest's many other bait combinations on his web site ..These include, particle baits like Black eye beans boiled in tomato soup, Soya beans,Chick peas and Haricot beans.
The types of rig set ups in Canada are much the same as here in the UK.
A deep water float rig,for depths of around 10 feet.
