One angler who has been using our products from day one has been the one and only Julian Cundiff so we caught up with him to ask him about how he got into carp fishing, waters he has fished and how his fishing is currently going…..
JC: ” The funny thing is that none of my family were ever anglers and the only reason I got into fishing was that riding round a local lake which was Drax Pond I encountered an ‘old chap’ sat behind a green screen and two rods puffing away on a pipe having his ‘Condor’ moment. That man was Eric Hodson the founder of the BCSG with Peter Mohan and a big part of the specialist angling movement…The year ? 1976 and i was all of 13….No idea why it seemed interesting but it was in the next three years I went from being a total beginner to fishing for specimen tench and bream. By the late seventies I was head over heels in love with all my specialist angling and from pike to tench, eels to bream I targeted them all. Then in 1983 I caught a double figure carp when fishing for tench and my fishing world changed immediately.
