Of mens die mees eenvoudigste manier van hengel – ‘n bos erdwurms onder ‘n rooi en wit dobber – of meer gevorderde kunsaas tegnieke toepas, bly kurperhengel ‘n fees.
Alhoewel kurpers al vanaf September gevang word is Februarie tot April in die warmer, noord en oostelike dele van die land prima kurpertyd.
Congratulations to Polarent on winning the February 2013 Catch of the month competition.
Let's have a look at tackle.
There's a bewildering array of well marketed tackle around, and if you pick up any magazine you'll be led to think that you need the latest/greatest kit just to be able to turn up at a water! Also people can be led into thinking you have to have really strong gear to land a carp, which is not necessarily the case. Just balance your kit to the water you're going to be fishing.
If you are going to invest any money in one piece of kit, then I think the rods are the most important item. Buy a decent rod now, and it'll last for years. One thing I think lots of people get wrong is in the type of rod they buy. Walk around any small water and you'll see loads of 3lb+ test curve fast taper rods being used, often when people are fishing less than 50yds out. Combine this with big pit reels and you can maybe see why some people lose so many fish. Let's expand on that.
Test curve -This is the amount of pressure needed to bend the tip of to the butt, although some of the more specialist rods are quoted inÂ° the rod 90 casting weight rather than test curve (as are sea rods). Don't confuse this with how much pressure you can exert on a fish.
Stroppe : Wat is veilig en wat is nie ?
In hierdie uitgawe kyk ons nie net na hoe om 'n effektiewe strop te maak nie, maar ook hoe om te verseker dat hy veilig is vir die karp. Seker een van die mees algemeenste foute wat meeste hengelaars maak is deur dat hulle Tigernuts of
For the beginner specimen Carp angler one of the most important aspects will be to be able not just make a basic rig, but to be able to make a basic rig that will work.
In this article I will cover one of the most basic hook links, with a bolt rig. The nice part about this rig is that it is very versatile and van be used as a pop-up rig or as a bottom bait rig.
What we are going to use :
- Braid Scissors
- 25lb Cortex coated braid
- Fox Excess BP Arma Point Size 6 Hook
- Fox Lead Carp Safety Bead
- Fox Flexi Ring Swivel
- Rig Putty ( For Pop-Up)
- Boilie Needle

- Anti Tangle tubing
Growing up as a policeman's kid, discipline has always been a part of my life. From the first day of school to the first day at work, hair short, shoes polished and always on time. That's the way things were! Ever since I can remember I have been fishing with my dad, grand father (still do) and uncles. But never next to the water, were there a thing called "fish care"!? We used to catch keep nets and keep nets full of fish, I mean, that's the way of measuring your success was it not? We were the hunters, the more fish on the table, the better we felt, the bigger the smiles from mom and the rest of the family at home. A great feeling of accomplishment. Taking them all home to make fishcakes or keep them in the freezer for three months, just to throw them away at the end of the day! In those days that were just the way that things were done. I am not ashamed to say that, that was the way we did things, because that was the way, that everybody did it!
The point I am trying to make is that no matter how much discipline
