I love carp fishing but it’s easy for less experienced anglers to get lost in the technical jungle which surrounds the sport. I’ve always liked to keep my carping as simple as possible. There is no mystery or magic behind the effectiveness of a really sharp hook! For me, carp fishing is a succession of very small details done well. If you get all the basics right, you eliminate all the reasons why you’re not catching. I hope you enjoy these how-to’s and find them useful in your carp fishing.
