A new, high-quality angling and culture Journal is on its way - 'Subsurface' is set to challenge the way carp angling is documented and stimulate an entirely new way of thinking about how our pursuit is represented. From interviews with the old school, to lads quietly doing their thing in the underground scene, to photographic galleries documenting nothing but the beauty of the environments we are lucky enough to find ourselves in, Subsurface exists to recognise and uphold the spirit that all made us all pick up a rod in the first place.
Our aim is to challenge the status quo head on, to shake up the sanitization that has developed in what is a fundamentally dirty pursuit and to get people thinking beyond the mindless step-by-steps; to hopefully encourage and inspire people to consider what the spirit of angling actually is.
Tired of the outlook we were being sold, we have come together as a collective by returning to the DIY roots of carp fishing by creating a publication ourselves; one that embraces the past, as well as the future, supports the scene as well as the trade and brings back some heart and soul, some appreciation for the environment and nature, and is filled to the brim with beautiful images and carefully penned words and passionate views; written, spoken and taken by the lads that live and breathe it. Compiled with no agenda, no ulterior motives and unbiased and uncensored, Subsurface is a completely independent publication, and aims to deliver the uncompromised and genuine vision of carp fishing that we wholeheartedly believe it deserves.'
