Two hours, two thir­ties to 39lb 12oz

Angling Times (UK) - - CARP NEWS -

TWO bites in two hours on par­ti­cles saw Dun­can Ar­ran­dale bank two thir­ties in quick suc­ces­sion.

The 42-year-old Wy­ch­wood and Rich­worth con­sul­tant found the fish in the mood for maize at his favourite Farriers Lake in Glouces­ter­shire.

He bagged a 39lb 12oz com­mon, typ­i­cal of the spec­i­mens found in the Carp So­ci­ety-con­trolled venue, and a 32lb 4oz mir­ror.

The Eve­sham an­gler fed about half-a-kilo of the yel­low grains and pre­sented three pieces on his rigs.

He said: “I had seen fish bub­bling close in and man­aged to lo­cate a small, hard, clear spot amid the weed nearby.

“I baited fairly heav­ily, mak­ing sure the carp were aware that there was some easy food near where they’d been grub­bing about in the weed, and to ac­count for nui­sance fish eat­ing some of it.

“I had two bites in two hours the fol­low­ing morn­ing and then the spot died a death, with the fish seem­ing to push fur­ther out into the lake.”
