An opportunistic angler, NICK HELLEUR backs away from session fishing. Here he gives a real surface fishing masterclass.

With a new postcode and a new challenging venue to boot, Dan Whitford has signed a contract to join Wychwood, ensuring he can focus solely on outwitting the lakes residents.


Having fished for two decades now, Daniel Whitford landed his first 20lb carp at just 13 years old, and from that day his lifelong passion and obsession has just grown stronger. He’s worked various jobs in the trade from tackle shops to his current position at bait manufacturer CC Moore. Having lived in Essex until recently he’s banked some very sought-after carp from The Essex Manor, including George’s and The Peach, both fish well in excess of 45lb. And despite just nine nights on the venue throughout the season he landed a staggering four forties and two thirties from the ultra-tricky venue.

Now based in Dorset with his girlfriend, Dan’s recently got his hands on a 13-acre gravel pit ticket he dearly wanted, and with the backing of Wychwood he can now focus solely on targeting the somewhat elusive residents safe in the knowledge he has all the tackle support he needs. Several trips have yielded fish thus far and we’re excited to help Dan on his journey, as well as document his success and work closely with him on upcoming product development.

Here’s what Dan Whitford had to say, “I’m very excited and a little overwhelmed to be approached by such a large and respected tackle company, not only does this help to remove a large expense from my angling allowing me to concentrate on catching carp, but it also gives me the backing and support to improve and progress my angling. I’m looking forward to learning from the rest of the well-respected Wychwood team, helping out with testing and developing new products and enjoying my fishing surrounded by like-minded people.”

Here’s what Wychwood comms co-ordinator Karl Jenkinson had to say, “I’ve worked with Dan briefly in the past for Advanced Carp Fishing magazine and his passion for carp fishing was clear to see. Here at Wychwood we look for keen anglers to act as brand ambassadors to use, develop and advertise the entire catalogue of product, which has a reputation for being incredibly good value for money. We’re excited to see Dan’s campaign play out, as well as his video blogs which they will be bringing to Wychwood's Youtube and Facebook channels in the near future.”

I’ve said it many times before, but it still amazes me just how good modern carp rods are in this price range and this C-101 from Wychwood is no exception.

The new big-pit reel from Wychwood offers an instant spod or marker reel straight out of the box that won’t break the bank.
Compact in size, but big on features and performance,
A neat, compact, big-pit-style reel with a free-spool mechanism.
Small on size but big on performance, these great-looking reels will cope with the biggest of big pits and they’re also super-smooth and great looking.
