I've been carp fishing for 30+ years, growing up in the Darenth valley in Kent, I've fished all the lakes in the valley over the years, learning my trade along the way and alongside some very good anglers,fished a number of waters around the southeast and elsewhere, living a number of years in Germany I've fish a lot of lakes and canals in Germany, Holland, Belgium and France.
My fishing today see me mainly up the Medway valley in Kent on a couple of syndicate waters and the old Cemex Sutton 2 lake in my home village.
I'm an old school angler with old school angling etiquette, love and enjoy my fishing as much today as ever.
So if you come across me and my dog sniff on a lake somewhere come say hi as the kettle is always on.

i have been carp fishing for around 12 years now and use this time to relax, unwind and enjoy my fishing.
I have used the range from Aqua Dynamix since 2010 and first started using the Worm which had instant success at Buryhill in Dorking Surrey. since then I moved onto the Citrus Shrimp in England and France with good catch rates, however I have now moved onto my favourite bait of all "Deliverz" I love the colour and smell of this bait, also accounting for two pb's in France this year. The company is very well run and deliveries are always on time without fail.

Fishing has always been part of my live, having a Dad who's hooked on it as much as me and more....
Growing up in Birmingham in the 80's I used to fish a lot of the park lakes, with Salford Park (lake beneath spaghetti junction) being my main target.
Then i found out Cuttlemill was 2 miles from my parents house, and this became my second home.
Over the last ten years my fishing has been limited, due to work and family life with an annual trip to France being my highlight.
I've got my head back on with managing my time to fish in the UK now, and have managed to secure a ticket on a very prolific syndicate in Cambridgeshire.
Chris Appleby is already a member, so knowing the bait has been already introduced to the fish, I can't wait to get on it.....
Be lucky, and enjoy...........!

I started fishing at around the age of 8, coarse fishing and once I got the bug I was "hooked". At around the age of 12 I decided to get into commercial match fishing and progressed locally very well. In 2007 my angling took a change, screaming reels and buzzers was my fix. For me the buzz of the take and the battle that follows can't be beaten whether it's 10lb or 50lb and I'm sure this will stay the same for years to come.

I first got into Carp fishing around 20 years ago with my Dad. We started as most With the Waggler catching Bream,Roach,Tench and Perch, this soon changed whilst away in Devon with the family. We went for a few hours one evening and the scream of the reel and alarms got me hooked. I can honestly say that the Carp bug has well and truly bitten me. Since then i have fished many venues all over the UK. Due to work commitments my angling is limited to overnight sessions of around 10 hours. Perseverance and strategic baiting with the Aqua Dynamix's awesome range has enabled me to do this with fantastic catch rates over the last few seasons.

After being a part of the Aqua team since 2011 I have managed to break my PB on numerous occasions. This Year (2015) i decided to start a campaign on a rock hard low stocked pit that holds just 18 known Carp i have so far managed 3 at over 30lb in just a few weeks.
Two of these fish hold my current PB's i am sure that the Aqua range of bait has given me the advantage over the other anglers.
Not just carp fishing fulfills my hunger for angling, i also partake in sea fishing,game fishing and fish for numerous river and still water fish species throughout all months of the year.

I have been fishing since around the age of 7 on my local canals and ponds. At the age of 19 i was bitten by the world of Carp fishing and seriously got the bug. Most of my angling takes me around Cheshire fishing the old sand quarries and meres. Now that my family is growing it is enabling me to get on the bank a little more and giving me the chance to get further a field which i tend to venture a little further down south.

I started fishing as at around the age of 6 with my Grandfather on a few local lakes targeting Roach, Chub and Perch, as my passion grew for the sport i went off in search of my first carp. I managed a small mirror of about 8lb but the smile on my face and feeling of excitement meant i was hooked forever and since that day the chase of scaley's continues. My current pb is from a low stocked Yorkshire gravel pit. I have used the Aqua Dynamix range of products for the last 3 years and have had fantastic results. I have done well on all the baits in the range form the Edge to the Shrimp and now the almighty Deliverz.

I have a young "expensive" family and work long hours so finding the time to fish is sometimes difficult. I prefer to target large, low stocked weedy pits going for quality over quantity, enjoying the journey and learning new things always getting one step closer to hooking a chunk. I've fished many waters across the UK and spent three weeks on the St Lawrence river in Canada but I always become drawn to large low stocked lakes. I am convinced that by using Aqua Dynamix baits for the last has helped my cause landing very tricky Carp. My fishing highlights over the last few years have been landing my PB Mirror whilst taking my son on his 1st overnight fishing session. Also landing one of the sought after fish from a local syndicate after only 4hrs of fishing with other accomplished/sponsored anglers on the bank. I firmly believe that the range from Aqua has aided this and I am proud to be part of the team.

I mainly fish local club lakes & rivers in Cheshire.
Due to busy work load & family life, i have to fit fishing in when i can.
This means i have to compete against fellow anglers as well as the fish.
Favorite style of carping: mobile approach with light scattering of boilies or pre-baiting areas of rivers.

I was first introduced to angling way back as a young whipper snapper! taught by Mum and Dad, who were both keen anglers. This love soon rubbed off on me, and by the age of around 10, fishing was a full time hobby. The backbone to my fishing was my local river Stour, here I'd spend every spare moment chasing a variety of species such as Roach, Chub and Perch. Despite catching a lot of fish from the river, there was always that want for something bigger. My dreams were to come true, as for my 12th birthday I received a full set of 'carp gear' (thanks Mum!) Everything from this moment changed, I could now angle for those impossibly large shadows I used to gasp in awe at. That spring I went on to catch my first proper Carp, a common of just over 15lb, the fire was lit... Up to the present day, I'm now a full blown 'carpaholic', a maniac, a nutter, a complete addict, a bank rat, a full timer, whatever you want to call me, I'm that! (and yes I do have a job!) Although I still return to where it all began on my local river, It's pursuing good looking, rarely caught carp, from tricky little waters that really does it for me. Whether they be big or small, I will be out there, chasing them, doing it, loving it!!

I'm 36 years old,and have been fishing for 30+ years. I have 8 children so don't get as much time as i'd like for fishing(but do any of us really?)
I don't really fish dayticket lakes,preferring the intimacy of a small syndicate,or a 'guest' session or 2.
My biggest fish to date is a 29lb14oz mirror,which is going to increase over the next couple of years due to tickets i've been waiting a while for,on a couple of pretty special places....

I started fishing 25 years ago on the canal had my first fish which was a gudgeon got hooked ever since. I used to do a bit of match fishing as a kid but grew out of it then decided to take up carping. I don't get the time to go as much as I'd like as we all don't with working and family commitments but when I do go I enjoy every minute of it and that's what fishing is about to me thanks.

I've been fishing since the age of 5 and grew up spending my weekends working in the family fishing tackle shop. I've always been an all round angler targeting mainly rivers for all our beloved species. I'm still some what of an all rounder but about 5 years ago started to target carp and from there on was hooked. I joined up with jk angling a few years back and have been an active team member since attending events and socials and always pushing the brand. I started targeting all the local day ticket waters while I perfected my skills and have since moved on to a 30 arce shallow res with unknown stock. It's proved a difficult water with very few fish hitting the bank but when they do there absolutely stunning. I love all fishing no matter the size and species it's ingrained into my dna and can't wait to get my two young boys addicted too.

I started fishing at a very young age and if anyone asked me to go I was ready.
As I got older fishing different waters from still to rivers and learning all the different types of methods. through the years I have swapped back and forth from the river to the pond. Only a couple of years ago I decided to give carp fishing a go and now I'm loving it..

Favorite Method - All Depends where I'm fishing, what I'm fishing on / or the one that catches me a fish .I have been fishing since I was around 8 years of age. I have many a happy memory of being on the bank with my Granddad on a wicker basket fishing for roach and perch at Belper pond. Sadly he passed away when I was 13 which I started to get into Carp fishing with some close friends, mainly trying to catch them off the top with my old course gear and a dog biscuit super glued to a drennan hook.
Now I have a young son who takes up a lot of my time so only really get out once a month whether it be my local syndicate or occasionally at a busier day ticket venue. Time is of the essence so having a bait I'm confident in makes a big difference.

I've been fishing 12 years or so. I started off as a sea angler on the north East coast, and started coarse fishing a year or so later and once I moved to Cumbria started carp fishing at Brayton pond and was soon hooked. I fish a few lakes around here but crofton has got under my skin and a good head of high doubles and around 6 that we see sort of regular enough over the 20 lb mark. The lake record was my pb and was caught on the Edge in March this year. I also fish the occasional carp match at crofton.

With all our pb carp coming on the edge it's been a good couple of seasons now.

My relationship with carp fishing began at primary school, quite accidentally, whilst I was riding my bike at a local waterpark. Intrigued, I began irritating a fisherman who inspired me to harass my parents for my own fishing rod. After that I was hooked - quite literally!
Even during my early years the thrill was in the hunt - formulating my own blends of bait, spotting fish in the water and then staking out… potentially waiting for ‘the one’.
I choose not to fish for commercial, frequently publicised fish. Instead, I fish based on my research for ancient, dark ones who lurk silently in the shadows. It is this natural beauty which makes the catch for me exhilarating, until the hunt starts again with my next target.
My earliest pursuit for carp began within a Midland park lake. Here I met a group of underground carp anglers who nurtured my new found passion for watching and understanding fish feeding within their natural environment. This then progresses into many hours spent on the bank as a teenager and now as an adult.
For me bait is the ultimate tool required to catch carp. Yes, you can bait up, watch and wait. But, if the formulation doesn’t suit your water or the season the quite frankly you may as well be fishing with only a hook! Therefore, I believe that it is from my carp observations, understanding and experience of formulating the right bait that gives me an edge. I now consider it a privilege to be affiliated with Aqua Dynamics who share in the same ideology as myself for the love, passion and dedication of the sport.

I have been carp fishing for 13-14 years on a number of low stock tricky waters up to heavily pressured carp waters around Norfolk. I have been lucky enough to catch my local waters more elusive residents. My most enjoyable part of carp fishing is surface fishing as it gives me such a rush I really don't think you can be. My P.B common is a fish known as The fungus common at 27lb and Pb mirror is 37lb 12oz .

Originally coming from London I started carp fishing at the age of 12 at local ponds and lakes, and once I got 'the bug' I was soon fishing the likes of Farlows most weekends. My passion soon found me joined to a club water with access to Tolpits lake where after lots of hard work I managed to catch the lake record at the time of 35.5lb and my pb. Many years later, I am now living in Somerset since 2010 and carp fishing is still a big part of my life. With work, family and a baby on the way I have to make the most of the precious time I get on the bank so having a good quality bait that I have confidence in is paramount, so joining the team at Aqua Dynamix was an easy decision.
