FOUR CARP TO A BEST OF 42lb 4oz AS ROVER PLUNDERS WEST STOW
Two Scale tops fine weekend haul
MOBILE approach helped Ben Dowers catch four carp from three different swims during a weekend session. looked like a neglected swim, so I opted to spend the night in there.
“I awoke just after first light, surprised that I’d had no action, but just before 6am I received a take on my right-hand rod fishing beneath an overhanging tree. That turned out to be the venue’s largest resident, Two Scale, which weighed in at 42lb 4oz.
“After returning her and a celebratory brekkie with the cameraman, I packed up and went stalking for another couple of hours, managing to bag a 19lb 14oz mirror before floating home on Cloud Nine.”
Ben fished Sticky Krill hookbaits and tempted Two Scale on a snowman rig fished over a scattering of 12mm and 16mm freebies.
