Simon Crow Carp Fishing

ANGLER | CONSULTANT | AUTHOR

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.

Escaping the crowds – CARP FISHING BLOG JUNE 2021

This month I’m out in the beautiful English countryside fishing one of the most picturesque syndicate waters in Leicestershire. Knipton reservoir contains a mixed stock of carp to mid-forties and is run by AJS Fisheries. I’m at the venue for 72 hours just after the spawning closure. The carp are all held up in the thick weed beds but with some careful bait placement and the right tactics I go on to land several nice fish into low-thirties. For more info on joining this venue, visit www.ajsfisheries.com.
