Karper Consultant

Karl Butler

Carp angler based in Surrey / Hampshire, fishing a range of waters from busy day tickets and club waters in the UK to venues across Europe. Karper LTD Bait Consultant and Korda Carp Academy graduate.

I’ve been carp fishing for over 10 years and have been using the KARPER baits when I first started on this journey, when the popups were first released, and since trying these for the first time I was instantly hooked. Since this moment, I’ve been using the range of the KARPER baits and joined as a Bait Consultant in 2018. Throughout my fishing so far, I haven’t felt the need to look at other baits as I’ve got the utmost confidence in the bait I was already using. If it’s not broken then don’t fix it and all that !

Since I started carp fishing, I’ve fished a range of venues from pressurised day ticket or club venues ranging from low stocked gravel pits to heavily stocked venues all in the Surrey / Hampshire area. I was also lucky enough to be chosen to be part of the Korda Carp Academy in 2017. I’ve caught numerous 30lbers from different lakes in the UK on a range of tactics, and have caught carp to over 65lb across Europe.

Due to my current commitments outside fishing with work and university, my fishing time is limited, so my sessions mainly consist of short sessions normally overnighters or day sessions. This is where I find the KARPER baits come into their own and have on countless occasions given me the extra pulling power I’ve needed to put fish onto the bank. 

As many, I enjoy the relaxing side of fishing as well as the social aspect and I’m always willing to give any advice or tips to others to help others maximise their catch rates, hence why I started this website. I wanted a place to share the knowledge I have gained since starting out, from the many resources available out there and experiences of being on the bank. The vast amount of resources out there including videos, articles and social posts can be very difficult to navigate and understand for all levels of anglers so I plan to combine all this into a single form through articles on this website, and hopefully help you put more fish on the bank !
