You may have noticed CarpLife has been quiet in recent times and that is because both Christian and I have been absolutely stacked out with work. My role changed to include managing the Avid Carp brand alongside Korum. A fantastic opportunity and one I have thrown myself into. Consequently, I've been taking the time this winter to assemble a 'supporting cast' to help us manage everything CarpLife.
To begin, we are introducing a Social Media Manager – old friend and fellow Lifer, Andy Blower. Most of you will know Andy from his fishing at Baden Hall in Staffordshire. Andy is a great example of what CarpLife is all about – only managing weekends and balancing his fishing with a busy career and social life, but still managing to sink the net under big fish every year.
Andy will be helping fuel our Facebook and Twitter push, collating a library of images for our Arcadian gallery. The best of these images will go into the first CarpLife publication, whilst the best of the rest will get posted to all our followers as often as possible.
So please welcome Andy with open arms, he's a great guy and top angler.
You can also expect to see our merchandise range being previewed later in 2015. Between now and then, expect to see a lot more from us. Like this wonderful video from Christian about the UK pit he fishes each year he visits. A special place, captured with some special visuals. Check it!
