Sir Pete Springate - Nash Off The Hook Podcast - S2 Episode 105

By Nash Tackle

Joining Hassan in the studio this week is one of the founding fathers of carp fishing, the living legend that is "Sir" Pete Springate.

Petes starts by talking about his early adventures from tench fishing through to developing his passion for carp and catching his first 20lber back in the 1960&aposs & 1970s. 

Pete talks about a record bracing brace consisting of two 30lb+ carp which he had from Yoeveney, a very little known and seldom fished lake at the time.

He goes on to reminisce  about Wraysbury where he was able to catch Mary three times to over 51lbs  as well as the iconic branch shot of Mary and Mary&aposs Mate both caught in the same session from 150 acres of water with a stock of only 25 or so carp in.

A feature of this great man&aposs angling is that he has caught pretty much every modern day great carp before it was widely known and he shares chapters on The Sonning Eye from Sonning Reservoir, Heather & Basil from Yateley as well as commons from Redmire to name but a few.

Lastly Pete talks about his opinions on rigs, bait, braided reel lines as well as his passion for catching carp off the top. In fact he managed to catch a carp off the top  in every month of the year for over three years!

Without Pete&aposs early pioneering and unparalleled passion for carp fishing we are pretty sure the industry wouldn&apost be what it is now, so sit back and listen to an icon who has hugely been responsible for shaping the sport we all know and love so much.
