About Dave Springall

I started my angling at the age of eight float fishing on a small club lake situated at the end of my road in a small village in Essex. After spending many years fishing mainly for big tench and crucian carp I finally made the transition over to exclusively fishing for carp at the age of 22 and was fortunate enough to catch my first UK thirty using Mainline baits just a few weeks into my first campaign. 

Heavy work commitments then saw me take a long layoff from fishing, but thankfully I am now fully back in the zone and have landed a string of big carp over the last few years from an array of busy, highly pressured venues in the Essex area including: Snake Pit, Bovington 2, Essex Manor Farm, Braxted Back Lake, The Match Pit and Cleverley Top Lake to name just a few.

I prefer to target lakes containing just one big carp and thrive on the hunt of singling one target fish out from the rest of the stock and I'm currently targeting another big common that resides in a similar venue close to home. I am predominantly an overnight and short session angler, not liking to be away from my young family for too long and because of this I always like to make the most of a simplistic boilie fishing approach on very limited time.


As far as publicity goes I've appeared in most magazine titles: Carpworld, Carp-Talk, Crafty Carper, Carpology, ACF, Total Carp, UK Carp, Angling Times and Anglers Mail. Plus a fair bit of stuff with YouTube and on-demand channels such as Carp TV, Century Fishing TV, Trakker TV, ESP Carpgear TV and Crafty Carper TV.
