Simon Crow Carp Fishing


Welcome to my website page where you can keep up to date with my angling exploits as well as look back at some of my memorable catches. My main focus is carp, and over the years I’ve managed to catch them from more than 300 different waters, including 50-pounders from seven different countries (England, France, South Africa, Austria, Hungary, Romania and Germany).

For almost thirty years I’ve been a sponsored angler, working as a consultant for top brands like Avid Carp, and together with Rob Hughes I was the co-winner of the first ever global carp match, the World Carp 1996.

I spend most of my time fishing in Yorkshire where I currently live, but I love nothing more than travelling to new destinations and meeting like-minded anglers from different cultures.

I hope that my site and links can inspire you to follow your carp fishing dreams just like many others have done for me.

Summer road trip – CARP FISHING BLOG AUGUST 2020

My first road trip of the year sees me fishing one of the most famous carp waters in Germany, home of the former world record common. It was planned as a two-week visit but is extended to three due to the infamous virus, my longest ever carp fishing session. Known locally as ‘die hard lake’, it starts off in a sad way as I find the venue’s biggest carp dead on my first day, a massive common of 83lb. It then picks up with some nice carp coming my way, including several 20kg fish, topped by an ancient 50-pounder known as Nemo. I cover tactics and talk about the meaning that big fish have on compulsive carp anglers. The trip also covers 48-hours on a nearby forest lake to break up the tough fishing, where I’m fortunate to land a stunning mirror known as The Dark One.
