"If someone had told me thirty years ago that one day the backdrop to some people's carp captures would feature office blocks, factories and high street retailers I would never have believed them. Surely carp angling is an escape to the countryside - to quiet meadows far away from civilisation? Yet today more and more urban carping exists. Park lakes, wharves, rivers and canal systems within the city itself have become home to some monster and scale-perfect carp. Carp will take advantage of their surroundings; it makes no difference to them if they are enclosed by willow and oak or skyscraping tower blocks - if the water can sustain life it will be occupied."
