Hi all

now i know this is gonna sound a bit like soure grapes just a week after the worst ever go fishing show at the NEC but yet another carp show and as usual it's set down south do you have to come from south of the Midlands to be a carp mad fisherman or is it that the big names wont travle this far unless it's for a chance to get into carpmania as a man of limited transport and funds im getting sick to death of missing all the good shows just because there down south.Tell me is it just me or is ther any body else that feels this way .sorry to be so sinical it's i just call it how i see it the amount of good carp waters we have in the Midlands and there allways down there what would be wrong with liford ,linner or the monumant or some of the newer waters in Eversham dose the money allways have to stay there i could name lots of great waters up this wat woodland view tunnle barn .tell me what you think .hooktie .Iain

Being north of manchester we have no hope of seeing a carp show and with the rate of fuel price increases its just not worth the cost of the trip down south.

Wouldn't worry, wherever they are there crap nowdays, and it's always cheaper in your local tackle shop. The dayout will cost you at least £40-50, money that could be spentin your tackle shop.
