In our opinion, carp anglers come no better than Ian Russell.
He's the twice Total Carp magazine Battlecarp match winner, a Carp Wars winner with Crafty Carper magazine, the 1999/2000 Daiwa Masters winner and a regular British Carp Angling Championships finalist.
He's caught more 40lb+ carp in the UK than most dare to dream of, and had well over 100 English 30-pounders. He's a regular face on Sky TV and Online TV fishing programmes, and has over 16 years experience writing for all major UK carp titles. In short, one of the best carpers in Great Britain - if not THE best.
