    A bit of advice, the first thing is do your homework. Walk round the lake study the swims as you go, watch for signs of fish rolling and look for features where carp might patrol like weed beads or over hanging trees. Take note of the time of day you saw carp rolling in any particular swim, look for patrol routes that carp may use on there search for food. Its not a good thing to go a new venue and start asking other anglers for advice because they tend to keep it under there hats the tips they have gleaned them selves by doing they,er homework. I hope this is helpful to you, stick at it and you will reap your rewards. tight lines mate. mick.

    Follow the birdlife - or more accurately, try and be where they are heading
    Be in Summer bay BEFORE the fish are there, and don't bait over their heads
    Don't be afraid of a long walk.
    You don't have to cast miles, even in winter bay......
    You're born, you take sh*t. You get out in the world, you take more sh*t. You climb a little higher, you take less sh*t. Till one day you're up in the rarefied atmosphere and you've forgotten what sh*t even looks like. It's just a shame I'm still on the first rung!
