Yes! Then...

However, what Black Cat team angler Benjamin Gründer and his guiding guest Markus Brock experienced at the end of January on the Po in Italy was something far more spectacular!For over a year, Benjamin Gründer had been repeatedly noticing a very big fish on his fishfinder during his tours. He had spotted the fish no fewer than 21 times on a stretch of five kilometers of river. Gründer takes up the story: “Initially, I always thought it was obstacles on the bottom, like sunken trees, that would produce such a signal. But at a...

Illner tempts giant common carp in testing with Rastafari Boilies

Tostedt.  Radical team angler Robin Illner was tasked with testing the new Radical Rastafari Boilies at the start of the year.

Other ingredients include high-quality proteins in the form of egg albumen, which is easily digested by fish. Illner has had the opportunity to test and improve the bait on many waters in Germany as well as in Austria, Slovenia and...
