Harry Burr (Carp Consultant)
“Hi, I’m Harry Burr, 18 years old and a keen all round fisherman.
In the past few years I have progressed to carp fishing on lakes and canals, though I still enjoy catching small roach and dace on the river.
I am adept in many angling methods.
One day I might be float or feeder fishing for small carp on match lakes. The next day I might visit lakes and canals for bigger carp using a variety of rigs and lead setups.
I’ve caught plenty of carp from the local canals and lakes.
I do evenings mostly, and 24hr sessions on weekends .
One of my favourite catches was setting up in the rain for an overnighter, casting to the baited spot just before dark. At about midnight the left hand rod was away for a 28lb common. I rebaited the rod and got a bit of bait in to the swim. At 7.30am the rod was away for a 41.2lb mirror…..perfect!
