The Newbie: Re-writing The Rule Book

Ever been the 'new guy' on a syndicate? More to the point, ever been the new guy who has it off in their first season? If you haven't, then this article is going to be well worth a read, as Mat Woods looks at how and why some anglers are able to join a venue and simply re-write the rule book.

48 hours with Darrell Peck

Two years ago, Darrell Peck kindly agreed to auction himself for a 48hr session with a CARPology reader on the historic Wraysbury North Lake in aid of the Lucy's Bowl charity.

If you consider the hours each rod had accumulated, it adds up to over 140 hours for each one sat on the alarm. Waiting. Then, in the space of ten minutes, just before they were about to be wound in both produced fish. The odds on that must surely be pretty enormous...

A Wing And A Prayer

Sitting in a dimly lit cafe on the outskirts of North London, coffee machines burring away in the background, it's hard not to smile and be drawn in as Nick Helleur fills the room with passion and excitement, discussing his European adventure-style angling he's so famous for: from a tag-along, self-proclaimed pest at fifteen to his many annual trips today three decades later.
