FINDING NEMO IN SUFFOLK FISHERY
Torpedo of a carp gives captor the fight of his life
HIS surface-caught torpedo gave Aiden Sharpe ‘by far the best fight’ he has ever had. I packed all my gear up and drove up to the peg.”
The self-employed builder and bricklayer then rigged up a large controller float to reach the fish, which were more than 50 yards out, and Spombed out some more mixers.
He continued: “It wasn’t long before I was bent into a hardfighting fish. I knew it was a good one from the way it was plodding and the power it had, stripping line off me.
“It was by far the best fight I’ve had, and it managed to snag me in the reeds for a couple of minutes before powering off again.
“By this time the bailiff had come down to give me a hand with the net and after about 30 minutes I finally had it in the net. Happy days!”
