Arjen Uitbeijerse Rejoins Solar Tackle 31/08/2017 00:00:00

One of Europe's most prolific big carp anglers is back at Solar Tackle as Arjen Uitbeijerse rejoins the Solar team.

Well-known for targeting, and catching, some of Europe’s biggest carp, Arjen has one of the most impressive catch records of any carp angler. With a PB of 91lb, the famous Scar Fish from Les Graviers, and with 9 carp over 77lb to his name including The Brown Fish, Perfect Common, Scarface, Ten Scale, The Pig, Big Common, Red Belly, Long common to name a few, and as editor and owner of Spiegel Magazine Arjen is truly a big-carp specialist.

Having spent 3 years as part of the Solar Team previously, Arjen is returning after a short time away. Having seen the projects in the pipeline at Solar Tackle and with the imminent re-launch of The Originals bait range, it’s no coincidence that Arjen’s timing is perfect and, along with the other team members, Arjen will form a key part of the Solar family as the UK brand pushes forward like never before.

Having officially joined the Solar Team Arjen is currently 3 days in to a session at Feuilette in France using the soon-to-be-released Originals boilies. His current tally is 20 carp, with some being over 50lb. In fact he’s landed 9 to nearly 60lb in just 6 hours!

Commenting on the sponsorship Arjen said; “I’m thrilled to be back on board with Solar, and particularly to be using the Solar baits again. Behind the scenes the plans for the future are huge, both short term and long term, and it’ll be great to part of this given my past ties with the Solar brand and my long-standing friendship with Solar Tackle founder Martin Locke.

“I’ve got some tough lakes in my sights for the coming months, most of which are new venues for me, so I can’t wait to get out there and really put the new baits to best effect.”

Watch this space, and Solar Tackle’s online platforms for plenty of impressive catch reports, videos and more from Arjen.

e52b35b6-597a-47bc-810e-97f8944bd274 Original Club Mix Produces 7 Carp To 32lb In 48-Hours For Alain 30/08/2017 00:00:00 48-hours on the Waesmere syndicate in Belgium has seen Alain Servaes enjoy 7 takes, with a 32lb mirror and a true ‘old character’ fish tipping the haul before ending the trip in a heart-stopping fashion as he put The Originals Club Mix boilies to great use.
 
Alain explain: “I arrived at the lake on Monday evening to be told that there had been a social on the lake for the past 3 days and from the 11 angler only 3 carp were caught. The lake can be very tricky nowadays and so I planned to try something a bit different. Most fish at range, and so I was going to target some margin spots.
“I positioned two rods on two clear areas in the margins. Hook baits were Originals Club Mix boilies and matching freebies were spread over both spots too.

“At first light came the first bite. A crazy, close-range battle resulted in a 32lb mirror… what a start!
“The day passed quietly until dusk when one of the rods ripped off, but within seconds the fish had found its way in to some sunken trees and it was game over. I topped the spot up with more club Mix boilies and an hour later the sa me rod was away again. It wasn’t the biggest carp in the lake at around the mid twenty mark, but it’s certainly one of the oldest and a great character.

“In a repeat performance the following day passed without event. With the onset of evening the rain started to fall heavily. Almost the moment the rain stopped, a couple of hours later, I was in again and quickly landed a small common. The landing net had barely touched the ground again when the second rod tore off and one of the lake’s younger stockies paid me a visit.

“Again, the spots were rebaited with Club Mix boilies and first light brought another bite, this time from a 20lb common, which was quickly followed by another take, and another 20lb common.

“Please with my result and needing to get back to work I started to pack up when I got a screaming take. I picked up the rod, but couldn’t stop the fish as it tried to empty the spool. A fun, powerful fight, but the big sturgeon responsible wasn’t exactly what I was after. Even so, it was a hectic way to end the session.” 06f26593-4cc4-45c2-b712-4161c9df2393 On a Roll...
