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.

Short Sessions & Overnighters – CARP FISHING BLOG AUGUST 2019

This month I take a look at my approach to short sessions and overnighters. I visit the stunning Weston Park in Shropshire where I catch commons to over 30lb, as well as a mirror known as Five Star which I’ve been after for quite some time. I focus on the baits and tackle I carry, my baiting strategies, as well as my surface fishing rigs and tactics. The film includes playing action and big fish taking baits off the surface, set in a wonderful British country estate which offers open access fishing (visit www.rhfisheries.com for info).
