A mate had three bass off Friday nights high tide, 11lb 6oz, 5lb 13oz and 6lb 6oz. All came from the gutter about 20 yards out.

Whilst I was away in Cornwall last week I spent an enjoyable evening bothering the carp in a heavily weeded estate lake.

A thing of beauty.

And the fish ain't bad either.

From the beach with sand eel? Time to get my rod out. Just down the coast in Devon.

Steamer Point at a guess. Knowing Andy it would almost certainly have been taken on a whole mackerel, freelined into the gulley whilst he held the line to detect a bite.

He is something else when it comes to fishing.

Course, sea or game, I’d even back him to catch a fish in a sealed bottle of Evian Mineral Water.

Rod Hutchinson.

Won't mean a lot to non carp fishermen but a bit of a boyhood hero of mine.
Died last night.

When I was 14 he replied to a letter I sent him regarding a difficult swim I was fishing.
He took the time to write back with a hand drawn illustration of a rig he suggested I use.

RIP Rod.
An all time great.

Such sad news. He'd not been in the greatest of health for a long time.

RIP Rod.

Didn’t realise he’d been ill, RIP.

Genuinely gutted by this news.

Rod was a pioneer, innovator and genuinely decent human being.

Fishing will be a lonlier place without him but we will always have his fantastic books as a lasting legacy.

RIP Rod.

Me too. Last time was at a Carp Society annual bash at Dunstable where he'd brought a new brolly/ bivvy affair to the market (post the Kevin Nash 'Partnership').

He was very big influence on my time carp fishing - particularly in the early years and the carp world will be mourning right now.

If he'd had a business brain to match his fishing ability he'd could have been a millionaire!

He's the reason Kevin Nash plus a few others are millionaires.

That's essentially what I was getting at, but maybe now's not the time?

I'm very much out of touch with regards to the bait making scene these days, but I'm sure that with a decent base mix behind it, Hutchie's original Scopex/Chocalate Malt combo would still be an absolute belter!

I think 95% of the original range that Nashbait first produced and have since gone on to become synonimous with big carp came from Rod's company .
As did Gary Bayes.
