about new

The Ladies’ Carp Academy was our brainchild. Together we agreed that although the carp industry had a number of coaching events and competitions happening across the country, there was nothing solely for female anglers.

We decided it would be great for female anglers of all abilities and experiences to have an event where they could meet and learn from one another in a social, fun and relaxed environment.

After speaking to Mike Fletcher at Pool Bridge Farm Fishery, it was decided we would run the event on the venue’s Q Lake and open it up to 12 female anglers who would be instructed by a number of the England Ladies Carp Team, including myself (Bev).

With the venue and idea hatched, we began work, and as you look through the site, you will find out all the information you need to get involved.

The 2017 event was the first one we held and was a great success. Check out the gallery page to see how it unfolded. We are now working on the 2019 and can’t wait to see the Ladies Carp Academy grow!

Wishing you all the very best in all your angling, Bev Clifford and Andy Loble


2020, the year Ladies Carp Academy went big!

2020 is a big year for the Ladies Carp Academy as it the first time there will be a North and a South event. The North one will still be held at the fantastic Poolbridge and we are mega excited to say that the South weekend will be taking place on the South Lake at the historic Wraysbury Lakes complex. We are also planning to have another casting day later on in the year and maybe a couple of other days if we can fit them in! We look forward to you joining us and if you have any questions just drop us a line via our social media pages or email bev.clifford1@gmail.com
