May competition: Win one of three sets of three white (!) Monkey Climber hangers

Hi peeps, our April competition ended with Marco Boer being the lucky winner of the Tempest Composite V2 + overwrap. But don’t worry, we’ve got another great prize coming up! This time you have the chance of winning three sets of three white Monkey Climber hangers, which we’ve unearthed while moving premises recently. For those who know, these are rare as rook (Ringwood slang lol).

Instead of doing the usual like and share, we’ve again decided to give it away to our loyal customers: everyone who orders (big or small) from our Bigcartel during the month May enters the competition automatically, three winners will be drawn randomly on June 1st, 2018. Spread the word & be lucky!

48 x FREE Tubs of exclusive CC Moore Monkey Nutz pop ups!

Well, as you may know, we’ve moved premises recently and whilst cleaning out our stock space, we just unearthed an unopened box of CC Moore’s exclusive Monkey Nutz pop ups they did for us in Zwolle this year! These bad boys are based around an old school Peanut recipe, and have been catching some mega fish already.

Instead of selling them like we do at the Zwolle show, we chose to give them away for free with the first 48 orders over 70 euros (shipping non included) on our Bigcartel store. Be quick!

Behind the Stocking scene(s)


At Monkey Climber we love emotion. We love the story behind things. Not the sheer facts. Someone might take the best pics ever, but they can have no emotion. This is something my GF taught me. Her pics always have that little extra, and we were glad to receive a Willem Barnas email in March with a series of gems too. Five pics telling the story behind a recent stocking of carp, with showing the stocking itself. More of that Mr Barnas, pretty please!

New pocket tee fabrics in!

From left to right we have Wild Pheasant, Dark Owl, Ferns & Marble Camou. Coming on Black and Heather Cream Grey shirts. These are already available but not on our official webstore yet. If you want one already, contact us on

PS All pocket tees we do are made to order, every single order from the last two weeks has been made last weekend. Thx for your support!

Operation freedom 90lb+ Du Der common, a historic documentary

Only 48 hours after being able to expose the world’s biggest free living common carp swimming in a tiny paylake, a great bunch of international friends led by Samir Carplifer were able to bring it back to its original home, the mighty Lac du Der. Let freedom ring with a shotgun blast! Full article coming in the Summer issue of our mag, MC#14!
