Written by Julian GrattidgeFancy seeing your name in print?
If you’ve ever fancied writing an article, a product review, or just want to share a special capture or session with us, here’s the perfect way to put in down in writing, get it published, and be in with a chance of winning some cracking carp tackle for your efforts!
Most anglers rarely consider putting pen to paper (or hands to keyboard to be more precise!) with the intention of writing something for publication as it can easily seem a bit daunting. To be honest though, it’s often only a case of adding a little bit more detail to some of the posts or emails you might make on a day to day basis without even knowing it! You don’t have to be the next JK Rowling, as we can happily edit and check anything you submit before it goes to print, so it’s just a case of having a go!
Each month we hold a free prize draw for anybody who sends something in which gets published - The more pieces you send, the more chance you have of winning! – You can see this months Prizes HERE.
What kind of thing are we looking for?
Well, anything you like really so long as it’s carp related. They don’t have to be mammoth pieces – a page of A4 will do, though the longer the better. Below are a few examples of the kind of thing we are looking for – why not have a go and grab yourself a chance of winning some top tackle? Feel free to contact us with any questions you might have.
Why not write us a product review? Take any tackle item you have, tell us why you chose that one over other makes/models available, where you got it from (so we can link to their website if they have one) and how much it cost. Tell us a bit about how it works, how you rate it, and anything else somebody currently looking at purchasing something similar might be interested to know - Looking for about a page of A4 text with an image if you have one. Take a look HERE for examples.
Moments in time
Why not write a piece about a special capture, session or anything else related to your fishing that put a smile on your face. Some ideas for articles along these lines might be; your first carp, your biggest carp, your best session, a new PB, a recent capture, or a target/goal achieved, etc. Looking for about a page of A4 text (longer the better) preferably with an image or two. Take a look HERE for examples. Just remember though, it doesn’t have to be about big carp - it’s not all about the numbers!
Why not tell us about your favourite swims on waters past and present. Tell us a little bit about the water and what made the swim special for you. Did you catch any fish from it, or was it something else that made it special – the surroundings, etc. Looking for about a page of A4 text per swim (longer the better) with an image or two if you have them. Take a look HERE for examples.
Club/ Venue News
If you are involved with a club, day ticket or syndicate water, why not do a catch reports piece. Not only will this benefit the club/water as we can link to their website, but you stand a chance of winning some free tackle! Tell us a bit about what’s been happening each month; catches, club/water news, events, etc. Looking for about a page of A4 (more the better) preferably with a couple of images.
I look forward to hearing from you!
