River carping! where do I start, well for me carping on the rivers is just a totally different scenery to your day ticket lakes and your syndicates, I think its the wild side of the left alone countryside that draws me in and of course the many carp that don’t see many anglers rigs. Being left alone on a river to do your own bit of angling is something I’ve fallen in love with through the years as you don’t get disturbed and hear bite alarms 24/7 and for me that is what angling is about, choosing under fished venues where it’s just you and the fish!
My approach when fishing the rivers is no different to if I was to fish a lake, its all about location! Knowing where the carp are is the biggest edge as it gives ya confidents and confidents catches you carp. As the majority of rivers have a close season some would say that us river anglers miss some of the best months of fishing but Its no all bad using the close season to your advantage by walking and finding them is a great tip! So many lengths on the river looking for the carp is something I would say is a must when trying to catch them.
