MAR­GINAL MAD­NESS!

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

ACOUPLE of years ago I went out on a mar­gin fish­ing fea­ture with Steve Ringer. After three carp I’d shot enough ac­tion footage, but I wanted to cap­ture the mo­ment the float buried so I donned chest waders and slipped into the wa­ter a cou­ple of feet from Steve’s pole-tip.

A large carp came from be­hind, bashed its way through my legs, swam un­der­neath the cam­era tri­pod and went down on to Steve’s feed. Sec­onds later the float buried and elas­tic streamed from the pole.

Ig­nore what you may have heard about mar­gin carp be­ing spooky – when you get them on the feed they’ll take some stop­ping! Read Steve’s lat­est col­umn on page 34 and give it a go this week­end.
