Personal Bio

I started Carp fishing 6 years ago and I love every second of it. I put a lot of time and effort into my Carp fishing so much so that I have now started tutoring anglers who wish to either learn the basics from the beginning or hone there current skills. My favourite venue is the Richworth Linear Complex, Hardwick Smiths in particular. My current PB, a stunning 32lb 10oz Mirror,  was caught from Oxlease. When on the bank, I never stop. Always watching, always thinking, working as hard as I can to catch the quarry.

I also have my own dedicated Carp page on Facebook, search for Stuart Broadbank – Carp Angler. On there I post rig and baiting tips, session videos, competitions and much more.

There is nothing better than being on the bank and casting a line. Never forget though that even if your reels aren’t turning, you’re always learning.

One piece of angling advice you could give someone? Take your time when arriving at a water. Walk round and find the fish. Never take your eyes off the lake and if the carp move then move with them.

Have you heard the one when about 20 years ago i was course fishing a local lake. I had just been mixing some groundbait and i went to wash my hands in the lake. Next thing I felt was my whole body falling forward straight into the lake. I was completely sodden but I did continue fishing.
