I'm a Aquatic Technician/ fishery manager from Sussex and have been fishing for as long as I can remember. I have fished up and down the country chasing big carp from small estate lakes to large gravel pits. Through my adventures I’ve been lucky enough to have caught 9 different Uk 40s both mirrors and commons. I was first introduced to Rig Marole a good few years ago by a couple of good friends. Straight away I was amazed by their products, especially the Hydro link which has played a huge part into my Rigs that I use. A big thank you to the guys at Rig Marole for giving me the opportunity to become part of the team.

I'm 44 years old a B.C.S.G member and work full time for JAG Products . I have been carp fishing for over 30 years now but have been an angler since the age of 6 fishing on the local stretches of the G.U canal in Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire . My angling these days consists of 4 or 5 nights a month { more if the mrs will let me } fishing on a couple of different waters varying in difficulty . I love a challenge when it comes to my angling so am quite happy sitting it out all year for a handful of fish . I have been lucky along the way to catch some special fish { and not all big ones } on a journey that i hope continues for many years yet . I'm sure that with the aid of Rigmarole products a few more will grace the net on this journey.

Bod Knight

I’ve been fishing for around 12 years now, I fish a couple of charity advents a year to raise funds i have a syndicated ticket on frimley pits 1&2 but I also fish day ticket waters up and down the country and to have a few socials with friends, But a big part of my fishing is taking my 6 year old Son with me 98% of the time to teach him the sport we all love. We also go to France once a year as well for a week.

Adam Parker

I’m a family man and a passionate carp angler. Almost every waking moment my minds on the water pigs. I’m a day ticket angler that loves trying to workout a new lake in a short time and catch them pressured carp. I’m very fortunate to have plenty of time to get onto the bank, and even more so getting to fish weekdays due to working shift. My 2018 is focused on upper 30’s and then breaking that 40lb barrier. Which I’m confident I’ll do, now I’m a member of a great tackle company in Rig Marole. But as most carpers will agree, all carp are more than welcome to hit the net.

I was first introduced to Rigmarole products about 4 years ago, while fishing in Abbey Lakes complex in France by the bailiff at the time Rupert Whiteman. We all know in the carping fraternity what a pressured venue this can be. I was introduced to a rig using rigmarole Hydrolink, a material so versatile for tying countless variations by stripping out the inner core. This specific rig and hook link material has been part of my tackle box ever since and I believe has been pivotal in putting countless weary carp on the bank for me.

George Jenner

In recent years I have fished in Kent, both Stillwater’s and the Medway River. My work took me to the midlands and I fished the pride of Derby waters and Nott’s Angling with the River Trent and the Attenborough Nature Reserve. Now, during pre-season I fish my home syndicate in Kent until spawning time and then it will be time to hit the rivers. I prefer to fish for the wild river carp, my work takes me all over the uk and wherever possible I work days and fish nights. River work is tough on your gear, snags and fast flows teamed up with the wily river fish will ruin your gear if it’s not up to the task, I use FLX main line in either 15lb or 20lb, it’s great for casting and resilient, the braided rig tubing keeps everything pinned to the deck and the free fall lead clip are a must to drop the lead and the clip, better control of the fish and an improved chance of a fish in the net. My hook links are either extreme hydrolink or camh20 depending on conditions. Stripped out the hydrolink is the most supple material I’ve used and well behaved in the water, presenting my bait as naturally as possible. I’m not here to tell you to go with rigmarole, any salesman could do that. But I’ll show you why I do.

I am 47 and from Middlesbrough, I have been carp fishing for around 9 years mainly fishing day ticket lakes around the Northeast. I got introduced to Rig Marole about 2 years ago and have been using the products ever since. For the last couple of years I have been fishing a few syndicates. This year I have joined Grendon Hope Lake which is a 17 acre low stocked water, So far I have been enjoying it there catching 7 fish to 33lb in 4 sessions. I try and get out at least twice month and travel overseas at least once a year.

Gary Fazackerley

I'm 36 year old vehicle diagnostic technician currently working with prestige and sports cars. I'm a committed family man, wife and two kids with a huge passion for angling. I started fishing with my dad around the age if 6. Dad was a carp angler, fishing a few club waters so I guess the gene followed suit. I progressed from float fishing when I was in my early teens when I started catching carp in the local canals. Since then I have fished a wide variety of venues from day ticket lakes, canals, rivers, silty estate lakes, Park lakes to large windswept gravel pits. I don't get huge amounts of time on the bank, mainly short overnighters, quick morning sessions with the occasional weekend for good measure. Originally from Surrey I've recently moved to the northwest town of Southport. I'm looking forward with the help of rigmarole to explore what the northwest has to offer.

Carl Adcock

I'm 35 years old and I've been fishing since I was a kid, I try and go every weekend to clear the head. It's not all about big carp to me I also like the pretty ones and the old scaly ones. I'm a big fan of old English carp. Even though I've been fishing for years, you learn something new every time. My PB is 38LB 6oz (Lynch Hill's Baby Orange). Out of my 5 years of fishing the dark side I started on Newlands angling for a year. I then progressed from there to Lynch Hill. started on willow and done really well from there and basically worked my way up to Christchurch awesome place!!! I then had a go at Orchid as it was only up the road from me. I just loved the strain of fish in there proper old warriors, I stayed there for 3 years until my syndicate come through for Guys Syndicate. Where you get a choice of 3 lakes with a good head of fish up to 53LB. And I'm a member of the Angler's against cancer.

Ashley Mount

In nearly 30 years of carp angling I've been fortunate to fish some prestigious venues in Essex and Kent in the main. From the early years on Arena Essex, Aveley Lakes, Shotgate Farm, Waveney Valley and Larkfield, i moved on to Darenth Tip lake in the mid nineties and consider these years to be the most enjoyable and educational in my angling career. Over the years I've amassed 100's of 30's to 44lb 4oz and carp to 58lb abroad and still enjoy my fishing as much today as those first casts on Chigborough Fisheries where i cut my teeth in 1990. The addition of a carp dog incidentally really helps by the way!! In recent times I've been exclusively fishing the Lily Fisheries venues around Essex and am currently hunting a 46lb fish that has managed to elude me. The advancement in angling products over the years always amazes me, so naturally I'm excited to be part of the Rig Marole team.

Tony Collins

With around 20yrs experience in the carp scene after moving over from match fishing . I have been lucky enough to have worked in France for 3 years as a bailiff catching carp to 63Lbs. The lure of a UK 40Lbs fish drew me back home. Whilst this still eludes me I have had a UK 39Lbs 15oz. Joining the rigmarole team has transformed my fishing massively giving me complete confidence in my rigs and tactics . The team are always looking to open up new doors in the carp world going from strength to strength developing new amazing terminal tackle with a difference. Giving you the ultimate edge over other anglers .

Robert James Rudge

I'm 45 year old family man with 2 teenagers to care for so working is a must my role as a kitchen manager keeps me very busy at times but on my 2 separate days off I like to fish my club water normally from Sunday late afternoon to Monday midnight and my 2nd day I'm normally doing house choirs and or doing work parties on my other local club lake and if I have time I would like to flick a couple of rods out for the rest of the day. I've been fishing for about 6 years and for the past 4 years I mainly fish for carp. I'd like to fish a French venue some day when I have the time and money just to see what it's all about as I've never a session over 60hrs as yet.
I have also been associated with a couple of bait companies but that weren't for me so joining Rig Morale is a different side of the team members thing and it's good to see what other team members do with all the wide range of products that are available and look forward to doing some testing of new products in the pipeline so all the hard work has been done for all you guys out there.

I've been a keen angler for over 30 years now and have fished a variety of different venues in my home county of kent over the last 2 decades. Last year i managed to get on the winghams syndicate and look forward to the next few seasons on there. Most of my angling is just one overnighter a week and have to make the most of my time. Rigmarole products has been the forefront of my main terminal tackle for over 10 years now and have total confidence in all that i use. Confidence is key !!!!

Andrew Batty

I've been using the rigmarole products for quite a few years now, my favourite had to be the skinful and hydrolink. Skinful is awesome for 90% of my fishing, but when fishing anywhere snaggy or full of weed its has to be one of the hydrolink as this undoubtedly the strongest hooklinkI've ever used. Most of my fishing is done fairly local to home/Yorkshire where I've had carp to 43lb

Chris Wake

I've been fishing from an early age "about 6", I started going with our neighbours eel fishing on the thames, as we grew up my mates and i progressed to course fishing for roach, perch and whatever came along and scrapping together what tackle we could afford doing odd jobs. My teen years were spent match fishing with local clubs mostly in deepest Kent for tench and bream and small carp then venturing further afield to the river Kennett for barbel, chub and big roach. In my 20's I found i preferred carp fishing as the mainstay of my angling and in the 80's gearing up for that and spend most of my money on tackle apart from a few breaks to go sea fishing carping has become my life, I'm currently fishing for one of two 50's on my membership lake "Darenth big lake" although they have eluded me so far.

Stuart Halls

For me, now, its all about the planning and preparation behind the capture. Ill spend days just watching a water and finding the fish. When I started fishing a good 35 years ago it was all about getting the line in the water as soon as possible, surely you had to do that to catch? But as time went on I started to notice subtle differences on the waters I was fishing, the odd fizz here, a little clear patch there, or the ever so slight swirl on the surface of a pond indicating a fish getting ‘tails up’, the tell tale signs that were once easily missed but that I now know are as invaluable as bait presentation and set up. My work also affords me many opportunities to fish places that have only really been poached or are completely inaccessible, working in the water industry certainly has opened up doors in certain areas, not necessarily to massive fish, but definitely to areas that have seen little or no fishing action, and when I have to work away, Ill always head for the bankside rather than a hotel room.

Stephen Best

I’m 43 years old I have been carp fishing for about 30 year. At present I’m fishing a syndicate down in Cornwall, my biggest from lake being my UK PB 44.11, my French PB is 58lb from Crete lakes. I fish 4 nights a month but this can be tricky as I’m a fisherman buy trade, so I’m at sea quite a bit. I’m looking forward to working with the team at Rig Marole. Their unique products stand out from the crowd & add an edge to my fishing.

Louis Scott

My name is Louis Scott and I am 17. I am from the south Leicestershire area and have been carp fishing for almost 6 years now. I started off fishing local day tickets. I was mainly self taught until 2017 when I took part in the well known carp academy and it transformed my fishing. I am now part of a good solid syndicate and have caught fish to over the 30lb mark. I am privileged to be on the rig marole team and look forward to working with them more and more in the future.
