Find Carp! (Print)
Upon turning up at your venue, lock your car and go for a lap without your kit, if it's safe to do so.
Make a note of the most heavily trodden areas, it may be worth avoiding these swims.
You're going to need your polaroids to spot carp - they're the most important piece of kit you own!
Island margins can often be good patrol routes.
Small, snaggy bays are well worth a look, especially if you keep quiet!
Reeds hold fish all year round.
Pack light and make sure that your rods are easily accessible, in case a chance presents itself as you head to your swim.
If you can't locate fish, fishing in a swim that a warm westerly or southerly wind is blowing into would be a good starting point.
Once your rods are out, pay attention to any unusual bleeps or more pronounced liners.
This was the result from Tom's session - find the fish and you'll score too.
