Sussex Carp Fishing with Carp Girls' Elaine Taylor

All about Elaine

Towards the end of 2011 I decided that 2012 was going to be the start of something exciting. Little did I know what 2012 had in store for me and the ‘Carpgirls’ - click here to find out more about thier first traumatic year.

Elaine Taylor is one half of

CarpGirls – a couple of

dedicated carp anglers

based in  East Sussex. She

is a self confessed carp addict having tasted her first fishing experience at the age of 5 when her Dad would take her out on the river bank Perch fishing.


Now sponsored by bite alarm makers Advanced  Technology Tackle, Elaine also manages a Carp water near Ripe and spends most of her spare time on the banks.


She makes her own bait and is a Level 2 angling Coach who enjoys introducing teaching youngsters.
