Legered corn for a mas­sive rudd best

Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

A SIN­GLE grain of legered corn saw James Thom­son smash his rudd per­sonal best with this im­pres­sive 3lb 10oz spec­i­men.

Fol­low­ing the re­cent cap­ture of two other fish weigh­ing 3lb 4oz and 2lb 14oz from a venue that he calls the ‘for­got­ten pond’, he re­turned to tar­get its ul­tra­cau­tious res­i­dents.

It didn’t take long for the tip of the Sleaford, Lincs, an­gler’s rod to arch round after he cast out the pop­u­lar of­fer­ing that he fished in con­junc­tion with a PVA bag filled with pel­lets and a 3lb main­line.

“I will never for­get the sight of that fish glow­ing un­der the light of my head torch. It was the most amaz­ing spec­i­men I’ve ever laid eyes on,” said James.
