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.
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.
