Terry Hearn is, without a doubt, one of the most commited carp anglers and a legend of the sport. If he’s not on the bank fishing, he’s watching the water and he is arguably the biggest name in carp fishing. Tel has helped develop several of our top baits including his latest boilie, CompleX-T as well as classics such as The Source and The Crave baits. Terry is well known for his target fish exploits having caught numerous famous fish including more recently ‘The Parrot’ at 63lb. Nowadays Tel likes to spend time on his boat ‘Lady Pearl’ targeting carp on the magical River Thames…
