Avid Carp have a fantastic new range of ‘carp care’ products designed and tested with the assistance of their consultancy team. We examined two of them at the Tackle & Guns Trade Show – the Carp Couch and the new Retaining Sling. Both looked the absolute bees knees in both design and materials used.
Ian Russell demonstrated the Avid Carp Couch and I have to admit, as far as fish care goes, this is 5-star. Some will Continue reading “New Avid Carp Couch & Retaining Sling”

In short, he’s a pretty interesting guy and no doubt a Continue reading “Marukyu, Ecogear, Nories and the Future for the UK”
