35lb 6oz

Not long in to the New Year and Grenville’s is still bringing the big carp to the bank!

Ron caught a new 35+, weighing 36lb 6oz!

Congratulations Ron well deserved

Colin Campbell

Decided to have a gamble and went  into peg 14 on a strong southern wind although this peg has not been fished for weeks or has seen any bait he just thought there might be a chance and do something different. Colin Fished 2 snow men and one pop-up about 130yrds to a hard area in 30ft and baited with 3kg of the new test bait from Mad baits. the only fish of the session came at 12pm a fiddly take at first then it went into meltdown the fish gave a really good fight and she was in all her winter glory.

1st big fish of the year!

January 8th, 2014 Comments off

40lb 8oz






The first big fish of the year was caught today by Paul Bennett.

This fish was last caught on the 5th of August by Dennis at 35lb.

The weight of the carp today was 40lb 8oz which is a new personal best for Paul!

Paul was glad he swapped to mad baits. May the force be with you Paul.

Just as we were leaving Paul also landed a 33lb 2oz!

Congratulations Paul

The Seventh British Carp Study Group Book-The Technical Edition…

A complete departure from anything we have produced before this is an epic 576 page volume subtitled “The Technical Edition” The BCSG asked its members to give their personal view on every aspect of carp fishing and almost seventy of them have contributed to this unique take on the technical aspects of our sport. Grenville member Ron Key was part of the team that compiled the book and he and Phil Calloway have contributed to it. The impressive list of writers spans the history of modern carp angling. They include Leon Bartropp, Gary Newman, Mark Holmes, Shaun Harrison, Mark McKenna, Ian Poole, Jason Hayward, Rob Hughes, Julian Cundiff, Tim Paisley, Keith Jenkins, Dave Gawthorn John Carver, Simon Hartop, Brian and Martyn Skoyles and many more with introductory pieces from Kevin Clifford, George Sharman, Derek Stritton, Kevin Nash, Pete Springate and Chris Ball.

The book is available on the British Carp Study Group website at for £37.50 plus P&P.
