Angling Times (UK) - - CARP NEWS -

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.”
