Issue 278, Volume 46Big Black Scaly Issue 2

It’s a Summer Screamer this month for sure as we present even more big, black, scaly warriors for your pleasure – our favourite type of carp from some of the most iconic carp waters in the land including Wraysbury, Dinton, The Flash, The Quarry, Linch Hill, Grenville and Yateley.

Cover spot this month is taken by Lewis North with his account of the capture of two stunning forty-pounders, a cracking scale-perfect common and an awesome dark mirror. Andrew Wescott tackles the legendary Wraysbury and scores with the weighty Broken Lin, certainly a carp destined for our scaly issue. Also at Wraysbury 1 "Not Mike's Pet" is the subject, amongst others, for Jay Newton, proving once again what an incredible water this is.

Speaking of amazing waters, they don't come much more amazing than the destination of our next two articles – Dinton Pastures near Reading in Berkshire. Kevin Haskins kicks off with a St George’s Day brace, followed up nicely with an amazing trip to Dinton by Tony Kingdon – truly stunning, big, black scalies. James Cottee smashes ‘em up at The Quarry and Connor Smith catches the Flash’s Big Lin – what an awesome creature this leviathan is. Next up is a man who is no stranger to catching incredible looking scalies, Steve Cartwright, a regular contributor to our monthly catch reports, and here is how he does it in his favourite month of the year, April! We are off the Yateley now with Paul Oxenham and a social, which turns into a forty-pounder red-letter day. A Significant Capture for Paul Bennett at Grenville’s is next. Paul's prolific captures are a regular feature in Big Carp.

Also in this issue – Mission for the first 30 by Wes Leadbeater, Shaun Anten’s Two Sessions In Two Weeks, Kevin Beaumont’s Where It All Began, Sam Butlers gets blown away… and on a different note, Kris Ford takes a look at bait – is it really still just a load of balls?
