FIVE THIRTIES IN FOUR DAYS ON A SOCIAL TRIP
39lb 13oz pb heads impressive list
ICKING a tucked-away swim on a social session with friends gave David Blankley five thirties and a 29-pounder in four days. they had picked this tucked-away swim, even if it was the furthest away,” said the coachbuilder.
Day three brought the 39-pounder, a new pb for David, and the action wasn’t finished. “I was woken up at first light to my rod screaming off,” he said. “I was on to what felt like a train. After a good 20-minute fight it gave one last burst of energy and ran me round the back of the island which resulted in a hook pull.
“Luckily a carp gave itself away by the island, so I cast for one last attempt to catch before I packed up, and five minutes later I had this cracking grass carp.”
