FAQ: Can I be notified by e-mail when there are new posts ?
Yes, the 'Subscribe to' feature allows you to subscribe to individual Categories, Forums and Topics. You will receive an e-mail notifying you when a post has been made.
Thanks for the welcome, guys. I've been reading posts on other forums for about a year but have not bothered posting mainly because I was working away and only got home at the week ends. I'm now back on the dole so can log on every night. I love to read posts by Brit anglers and keep up with latest methods. I don't fish much these days because I have no friends in this area and it's not much fun on your own. I fish for carp 90% of the time and use a match rod which brings a lot of looks from American anglers and comments like "where'd ya get that long pole from, buddy". It's amazing how much the rod bends with a double on and 10lb line!
If any of you are thinking of coming to The States anytime and are in the PA, OH or WV areas I will give you directions to the "Carp Capital of the World". This place has carp in layers! I have photos but can't show them (perhaps Newt can help).
Well now I've got y'all wondering I'll wish you tight lines and remember, "size don't matter".
Send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org (my home address) with particulars on where you are located and chances are excellent I can put you with carp anglers in that area.
West Virginia (WV) in particular is great for it. There is a large carp fish-in scheduled for Weston and fairly soon I think. And a fella handled oatmealjack fishes the Potomac for carp. Great guy and has lived there for years (may even be a native). Take a look at his web page http://www.geocities.com/yosemite/rapids/8155/
And there is a very active email list operated by CAG (carp anglers group) but open to all. I don't have the link handy here at work.
