I have been fishing since I was about 10years old , I started Roach bashing with my dad and got hooked , caught my first carp of about 6lb shortly after and that was it , to me it doesn’t matter the venue it’s all about the buzz of catching carp , I have got to say i don’t mind if it’s 10lb or 30lb as long as it’s dark and has lots of character then that’s the buzz for me .
I have been using eclipses various baits since I was a child as it’s a as the best bait bar none, and I have used plenty of other baits but it’s always been in my eyes the best bait I have used , having confidence in a quality bait always means the difference between a blank and going home a happy angler .
As I work 6 days a week and have a very busy lifestyle I have limited time on the bank so I need to be mega confident in the bait I am using and eclipse has never let me down .
My favourite style of fishing is stalking and surface fishing, as I am limited on time it’s the perfect method for travelling light and there is no better buzz than watching the carp your trying to catch.
