The importance of being patient

Hi,

I published the article earlier this year (August 2013) in Carp Connect, one of the oldest German carpfishing mags. The readers of the Monkey Climber Magazine may know this article as well.

Cheers,
Alexander

Monkey Climber 3: De kunst van het wachten

Hi,

The recent issue of the Monkey Climber magazine is out since a week. I love this journal. It combines great writing, amazing photographs and superbe layout style. A truly groundbreaking (carp-) fishing journal similarly suitable for the grand masters as well as the newcomer in style. In the last issue of this mag I wrote about „the art of waiting“. A topic that every angler knows too well. If you are master of the Dutch language, please have a read and maybe even give me some feedback what you think about waiting. I am still such a beginner in this notoriously difficult mind game…

Cheers,
Alex

Springtime fishing article in CHM

Hi,

This article was published in the Carp Hunters Magazine in March this year (issue 54). Do you recognise the mirror with the big scales from my previous post? Interestingly, this was one of the first carp we caught last year and this year. We only know of these two captures. Seems to be an early bird…

Cheers,
Alexander

Antwerp’s Finest

Hi,

This month two articles of me are published in specialized carp fishing journals. One is in the British journal Carp World and the other one in the German mag Carp Hunters Magazine. I cannot present them here yet as I respect the journals‘ policies and wait an appropriate time before I put them online. For the readers who master the German language, however, I will present today the article I had in the last (not in the latest) issue of Carp Connect 53 (December 2012). It is about my target fishing for a well-known fifty pounder in the region of Antwerp. Actually, this is not my cup of tea but when I first saw this carp on photos and heard that it is swimming only some kilometers beeline from my appartment I could not resist. I targeted „him“ for about six weeks or so before I lost him the first time. Two weeks later I caught him and another month later or so, I caught him the second time. He is a true eating machine and just can’t resist the offerings of carp anglers. At my first first catch he weighed 26.8 kg. The second time I did not weigh him again but he was obviously fatter than before. Carefully estimated, I gave him the number 27. Anyhow, I love this fish. He is a true character fish and made so many carp anglers already happy.You can find another photo of him in my Giants category. Based on former catches as a twenty pounder, this dinosaur is at least 25 years old (more likely much older).

I hope that he will be handled with a lot of respect in the future.
I did not hold him in a sack and released him both times driectly after the capture and photos at night (cheers to Jens Verschaeren 😉 who made the first time the photos).

Cheers,
Alexander
