The cold and short winter days are not for everyone, but, on the right waters, they can produce catches with the carp at their optimum weights.

Gardner Tackle's Jim Chisnall loves the colder months of the year and puts in most of his bank time between late October and early spring in search of those trophy weights and carp that just look their best.

Join Jim on this Essex lake session where he goes through his winter carp fishing approach covering tactics, weather patterns, baiting and everything you need to make your winter campaigns a success!

Thanks to Chelmsford angling Association for allowing us to film on their water.
