Gardner Pro Line

Gardner Pro Line

There are so many lines on the market – and so many make fantastic claims about their abilities. So what about Gardner’s Pro line? It is a fairly limp line and behaves it’s self very well. There are so many claims about line being limp and tough and this line comes as close as any...
Blowback Rig and Splicing Leadcore

Blowback Rig and Splicing Leadcore

In this video I do a step-by-step of creating a blowback rig and a leadcore leader to attach it to. This set up has put a ton of my fish of the past few years on the bank (including the one in the picture) and is my go to rig for pop-ups and balanced baits.

The Century C2-D Spod Rod

The C2-D Spod rod from Century is, if not the best spod rod in the world, certainly in the top 3 (it's likely the #1).
Prologic Windblade Indicators

Prologic Windblade Indicators

North American waters are challenging for many reasons. The larger lakes and rivers not only require a step up in tackle but can be especially problematic when trying to set up your alarms and indicators. Strong currents and undertow will often result in ‘bobbin creep’ which will invariably trigger false beeps which are particularly annoying...
New to Hair Rigs? Info, setup, and the basic tackle you will need.

New to Hair Rigs? Info, setup, and the basic tackle you will need.

There is a ton of information available to the new carper it can be overwhelming and almost off putting.

We receive questions almost daily about what tackle is...
The basics of fish handling

The basics of fish handling

I wanted to touch on a subject that comes up almost daily, carp care or fish care for that matter.  The fact that we carefully handle carp in America is something that is not seen outside of our community as carp anglers. According to the US Fish and Wildlife services, in 2015 there were 28,463,499...
Delkim - 25 Year Anniversary

Delkim – 25 Year Anniversary

  Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to try many of the alarms that have come on the market. One or two have proven themselves to be solid & reliable workhorses while many others, often with too much marketing hype, have promised plenty but never lived up to the expectations on the bank. One company however truly...
ATT Alarms (thoughts after some use)

ATT Alarms (thoughts after some use)

There are lots of bait alarms on the market and I have tried some of them. While I started off wanting all the knobs and buttons and adjustments, I realized that none of these things really matter as much as reliability. Having the ability to change the sensitivity of the alarm on the fly means...

What's in your box Zach?

What’s in your box Zach?

I’ve had a few requests to see what I take on sessions so I made a short video. I said the wrong thing a few times such as the first black box being Ambush when it is NGT. The second was the Solar baiting needle does not include a gated needle. Guess I need to...
