Brand-new digital e-magazine for the day ticket carp angler launches this week to huge acclaim.

Carp-E ( features Ian Russell taking on the UK’s day-ticket waters and using whatever tactics necessary to catch a carp or two.

Issue one sees Ian travel to Clattercote Reservoir on the Warwickshire/Oxfordshire border, where he encounters tricky conditions but manages to adapt and overcome in order to enjoy a bit of a red-letter session. Total Carp editor, Marc Coulson describes Carp-e: “It’s the perfect blend of written, photographic and film content, which all comes together to create a finished article giving an insight into the decisions that the top anglers make through a typical day session. Ian is a master of these venues, the likes of which abound up and down the UK and, by following his lead, the viewer/reader can definitely improve their own carp fishing skills.”

Ian himself was equally gushing about the new e-mag, telling us: “What I love about Carp-E is that Marc has given me the freedom to visit a range of venues and, without any prior requirements in terms of bait and tackle, I can just get on with things and do what it takes to get a bite. The venues will differ greatly in type and location, one thing that Marc is really keen on is that we travel the country so that we’re not just covering the south-east corner of the UK.”

Issue two has already been shot and filmed and Marc promises that it just keeps getting better and better.
