Walthamstow carp, having to work for it!

What’s the most challenging fishing you’ve done? Well for me catching a big Walthamstow carp is right up there, especially if you fish it the way I do.

Ebro madness, Spain

Catching big carp from rivers has always appealed to me. You never really know what’s in rivers due to the nomadic nature of the fish. I was invited to the Ebro and I grabbed the opportunity with both hands. A crazy, prolific trip that I won’t forget in a hurry! Ebro carp fishing at it’s finest.
