Danny Minnikin is one of the society’s  bailiffs, can often be found on the river bank and is more than happy to offer some pointers to any aspiring anglers who wish to pick his knowledge.

Danny says "The Ouse provides home to a considerable number of carp many of which are big specimens.As river fish they fight incredibly hard so tackle up appropriately and keep on your rod! It really is incredibly satisfying understanding how best to connect, land and admire these formidable creatures."


Dave says "I started  carp fishing during 2023, chats with the two gentlemen above on tactics and tackle culminated in this amazing 20lb 9oz specimen from the tidal Ouse. Beyond my wildest dreams for a first season targeting them!"
