I like my surface fishing for carp, I’m rubbish with a fly rod, so fly fishing for carp has not really been on my radar, but that might be about to change. A couple of years ago I met a fly angler called John Blewitt on an Angling Trust course and we have kept in touch. John fancied catching a carp on the fly and I had experience of some good surface fishing venues, it seemed logical to combine John’s skills and my knowledge to target carp on the fly.

Finding a word to describe Ashmead Fishery is not easy, but for now I’ll settle for unique. I’ve just returned from a fabulous session at Ashmead and in conversation with another angler it was described to me as a maze with no swims and a thousand places to fish … it describes Ashmead beautifully, writes Daiwa consultant Brian Skoyles.
