The Carp Channel brings you an exclusive insight into the trials and tribulations of big carp match fishing on huge waters, in this brand new episode of Chilly On Carp. 

We were able to shadow Team CarpWorld – a mighty trio comprising Lee Jackson, Tim Paisley and Ian Chillcott  –  in their assault on the World Carp Classic and in the first of three parts our heroes arrive at the 25,000 acre Lake Bolsena in Italy with high hopes. 
Unfortunately things don’t exactly get off to the best of starts when then draw a busy tourist ‘beach’, the camp owner tries to chuck them off, and Lee’s beloved bivvy gets ‘totaled’ by a mini tornado!

It’s FREE TO VIEW split into three parts in Issue 17 of The Carp Channel here on this site:
