The recently updated Titan bivvies have probably been the fastest selling carp shelters of all time and having used one myself for the last 18 months I have appreciated the benefits of the flat back, easy set up and strength of the iconic Titan centre boss.
The new range of Pinpoint Hooks from Nash Tackle have certainly got anglers talking. They are due in shops any time now, and although they include updated legendary patters like Fang X and Twister, the one that grabbed my attention was The Claw.
New for 2017 is the Titan T1 bivvy which came into stock in January. I’ve had mine for a few weeks now and I must say I’m very impressed with it.
I had my first set of Scope 9ft rods back in 2014 and they have since become the rods I use the most in my angling. I was sold on the idea of small compact gear as soon as Alan Blair showed me the Scope range. Carp anglers have a habit of getting stuck in their ways, especially when it comes to rods. Everyone uses either a 12ft or 13ft size, but if you ask yourself why, can you give an answer that suits the kind of fishing you do?
I’ve used a lot of 13ft Nash rods down the years. I’ve had the Pursuits, the Entity and the NRXD, all of which served a specific purpose. Now I have the latest model in the range known as the NR Turo.
