Martyn takes a look at some of his carp angling highlights as well as catches of other species.
A stunning 40lb+ French mirror, caught from a lake that had rarely been fished before. I love targeting venues with unknown stocks, it certainly makes things exciting when the buzzer goes off!
A personal best 46lb+ common carp, taken during a week long visit to Etang Le Horre in France.
Having learnt that the carp in the venue I was fishing tended to feed in the late afternoon's in winter, I often spent the morning pike fishing, this 21lb 8oz fish certainly made it worthwhile.
Another good pike taken in the morning before I switched over to carp fishing for the afternoon.
A cracking twenty taken off the top from a lake in Oxford, surface fishing is my favourite method in the warmer months.
A bonus sturgeon from a trip carp fishing abroad, immediately after I hooked the fish it leaped straight out of the water.
A personal best 35lb 8oz mirror from a North Lincolnshire syndicate lake. The fish came on an overnight session just as I was about to pack up for work.
50lb+ grass carp from a trip to France.
A last gasp 24lb 12oz pike makes the perfect end to a winters day.
I'm increasingly enjoying fishing on the rivers, this double figure barbel came from a multiple catch on the Trent.
