‘They’re bait fish mate, they always come off the big spots,’ I was told. I knew they were, and they did, but if you equated the phenomenal amount of rod hours those big spots saw to the bites they produced, it told a different account of events, and one that with just two 12-hour worknight sessions a week to utilise, I knew just wasn’t good enough odds for me to bet on'
Brother Thib jumped in the van and headed off for 16 nights this summer to visit a few new countries, and sample the flavours of some other scenes and waters than that of his homeland of France, travelling through Germany, Austria and Italy to get to Slovenia, and then back via Holland and Belgium.. 7 countries, and 3000k later we grabbed five minutes with him to catch up and see how it was. If you didn't live that dream this summer, or ever have, live it second hand through Thib's buzz here. Next best thing!
Thib has been a friend of ours for years now and we've followed his angling and the amazing carp he's been catching with keen eyes. As a 25 year old fireman in Paris, he lives a life of high drama and intensity, and also a life outdoors, fuelled by the drive to catch big carp from wild waters, and on an ever-increasing scale of size, difficulty and challenge. Sit back and take a little look into his world.
