    don't set any specific targets nowadays although I used to, now it's just to get out when I can catch what comes along, fish with friends, learn some more as we never stop doing that.

    As new to the sport it's a steep learning curve on most things but there so many tactics to get grips with . Carp camping is not for me though !

    I like the way you have talked about techniques rather than weights of fish as a goal, I think that is a better way to fish. Big fish are not in every water but if you understand why you are doing something, then if the "biggies" are in front of you the chances of catching them have increased.

    Absolutely. It's a waste of time, money and petrol to go tearing round distant venues until you've built a repertoire of techniques; if you can find a big river, a small river, a gravel pit and a pond to practice on, within easy reach of home, a year or several trying out every method you can read about will pay off in the future. And quite likely sooner.

    However, if you find some thing that really works (probably because you're offering the fish something they haven't seen before, or the same old bait in a different way) then take a break from autodidactism and ride that wave; fish are neither immortal nor glued to one spot, so make the most of them, and move on when they move off.

    I have done a lot of method feeder work on a local club lake and works well on commercials but waggler close in didn't seem to work too well think it's most patrol the far island . But yes want to be competent at a few methods then start going for specimens
