Presented by Carp TV’s Joe Morgan, this DVD is essential viewing for anyone who uses or is thinking of using imitation or plastic baits as they are commonly referred to. The first section filmed at Fryerning Fisheries Essex, is packed with useful tips and tactics and shows how Joe and top carp angler Frank Warwick use plastic baits in their own carp fishing. Topics covered include the Mag-aligner rig, imitation corn, zig rigs and surface baits, flavours, rigs that work, glow in the dark hook baits, imitation pellets and boilies, bait cages and odds and ends.
Despite the tough conditions, the pair manage to catch a few carp in between the banter and Frank’s recollections of memorable captures on plastic baits.
