THIS year’s UK Carp Show takes place at Five Lakes in Essex on March 21st and 22nd.
Shimano will be there in force and along with their full range of carp equipment, which incorporates such household names as ‘Baitrunner’, ‘Hyperloop’ and ‘Tribal’, all of Shimano’s carp consultants, such as Nick Helleur, Ian Poole and Derek Ritchie will be on hand to give you the low-down on the hottest carp tips and tackle.

Former match angler turned specimen hunter Jan Porter will also be there alongside Steve (Mad 4 Lures) Crowther who has built up quite a reputation in lure angling circles.  

A full complement of specialist angling equipment will be on show, including the Shimano Tribal range of rods, luggage and clothing.

Also at the show along with many carp manufacturers and retailers will be representatives from Oxfordshire’s Linear Fisheries. For more information on the show, call 0114 2580812.
