GREAT RIVER START IN NOR­FOLK WITH A 32lb 12oz COM­MON

Six fish in two nights on the Yare

Angling Times (UK) - - CARP NEWS -

HE start of the river sea­son has given Michael Sim­monds a great se­lec­tion of run­ning-wa­ter carp, topped by an im­pres­sive 32lb 12oz com­mon.

Plot­ting up on Nor­folk’s River Yare and feed­ing 2kg of boilies and some par­ti­cles, Michael’s first fish of the new sea­son was a 19lb 12oz mir­ror which came just 20 min­utes into June 16. A 14lb 2oz com­mon fol­lowed at about 6am.

A day later, Michael re­turned to the same wa­ter­way, but fished a dif­fer­ent swim. He said: “Ar­riv­ing late at about 11.30pm, I found a cou­ple of spots and clipped up and put two rods out with snow­man rigs over 50 baits.

“Noth­ing hap­pened dur­ing the night, but I re­baited and put the rods back out at about 9.30am and I had a one-toner which ended up with a 32lb 12oz com­mon.

“Half an hour later I had an 18lb 5oz com­mon, then a 14lb 10oz and a 12lb 8oz com­mon.

“Happy days! I’ve seen my new sea­son in in style.”
