A short winter carp fishing session with pva bags and stick mix.

This was an Impromptu last minute decision to get down to my local club water in Staffordshire. The weather was 2 degrees celcius with a cold north easterly breeze which prompted me to go with minimal bait. I had around 300g of stick mix which I used in conjuction with a pop up inside a solid bag.
During the warmer months I generally do one or two nights but as the winter sets in I switch to shorter fishing sessions usually getting bankside as the light breaks through then fishing through to almost dark. I just love the challenge winter fishing brings although a long stretch of blanks would definitely take it's toll.
There are certain types of water I definitely avoid during the winter which are generally deep large expanses of water & low in Carp stock. The one in this film is a vast water but has a huge amount of carp and through experience I know exactly where they congregate during the cold snap which is the main reason I regularly attend.
