    There is a story with this as well.
    I'd just put the coffee maker on the stove when I had the take. I thought it was a tufted duck or coot as they were diving, but as I picked the rod up realised it was a carp, so had to lean back over to turn the stove off while playing the fish.
    As I was playing it it kited right, alongside the rushes, but I hadn't got my chest waders ready, oops, so had to walk left up the bank to get the angle to play it clear. As it went out again i tried to sort chest waders but the fish gave me no chance so I had to step ankle deep to net it.

    Honesty is the best policy, it may have had a few ounces more, but to me it's hard earned 23lb.
    Facing into a chilly south westerly, wave spray breaking over the bivvy and I got wet feet landing it as my chesties weren't ready.

    I can give you a full breakdown on the RH Cabrio Hybrid Brolly, it is what I am sat in right now.
    The brolly itself is big, must be a 60inch brolly with sides. 
    The groundsheet is provided, and clips in place.
    You can set the brolly up with just the front bars, but also comes with Storm sticks. The brolly pushes up on a central pole which is then unscrewed and a 'stop blank' fits in place. You do have a spoke protector 'membrane' to stop you hitting the spokes, but that can be fiddly, and isn't an essential fit.
    Door system zips into place on either the brolly, or the extension, and is able to be pegged down, or  tied back and door up. It has mozzie mesh on the side panel under the 'blank'.
    The standard extension, (there is a Euro version as well) is a 450mm extension that zips on, with additional front bar and spacers to keep it pushed forward, and a groundsheet extension.
    Overwrap, it does work at reducing or even preventing condensation, there is a decent gap between brolly and wrap. Although it does sit on the top spokes, it can pull out at the sides to give the gap. It velcroes to the front bar, and has decent pegging points.
     
     
     
    With overwrap 

    Plain brolly, no storm sticks.

    West Ham and European Quarter finals, could be a regularity.
    There is quite a good write-up on Ashmead in Tim Paisley's More From the Bivvy, a few chapters on his fishing there. Yes it does look good, but sorry Mate, I can't justify the cost of the Carp Society plus around £140 (minimum) for 2 days/nights fishing, and a £100 security deposit.
    Last year I paid to fish Redmire, but due to unforeseen circumstances couldn't go, I  couldn't get a dog sitter who Sky was comfortable with. 
    My syndicate is £400 a year, and has produced some big fish to over 50lb, on natural food, along with at least 2 other 40's. 
    I may moan at blanking but with 150 fish in 50acres...
    I mention in response to a post, think it was Highy, it is hidden in plain sight.
    My reason for being a member of the PAC is that the club does educate, even lobby on behalf of protection of the pike, both locally at club and venue level and nationally. They also arrange via Region, junior fish-ins and teaching as well as other fish-ins.
    Do carp need that lobbying and protection? (Devils advocate)
    If however there was a national angling group covering all species I might be interested. (Something along the lines of the old National Association of Specimen Anglers). I don't think that the Angling Trust is quite right, something I can't quite put my finger on.

    My first carp I caught off of our doc. I'll never forget it. I was by myself with just my phone for the pic. I had no landing mat yet so I held it the only way I could get a pic. I also took a short video about 10 seconds long. This carp is not my biggest but my first. I didn't have a scale or measuring tape so I could only guess at the weight.
