For The Sharper Carper...


Well known throughout Europe for his big-carp catching abilities, and former long-standing editor of Dutch Carp Magazine Spiegel, this guy needs little introduction.

Having been part of the Solar Tackle team for the past 2 years, we are pleased to announce that we have taken Arjen on full-time to work solely on Solar Tackle projects.

You will have noticed the giant leaps from Solar over the past three years, with the launch of our SP bivvies, luggage, chairs and bechairs, as well as our A1 aluminium range, Bankmaster range and expansion of Solar’s core… the P1 stainless.

Well, there’s a whole lot more in the locker and Arjen’s role is to push harder and faster in developing new products alongside Solar founder Martin Locke, so that we can bring you even more high-end goodies to improve your time on the bank.

Of course, he’ll still be out there doing what he does best, catching huge carp throughout Europe… the best kind of product testing, and Solar will continue to bring you videos of Arjen’s big-carp escapades to enjoy online.


Commenting on his new role Arjen said; “Solar Tackle’s is one of the industry’s longest-standing carp brands and renowned for innovation.

“I have a unique opportunity with Solar Tackle to develop new ideas and concepts, unlike anything I’ve come across before. I have always loved product and product development due to the amount of fishing I am fortunate enough to do, the various angling styles I use each year, and of course the many ideas friends and I discuss year-round.”
