A ‘MAIZING’ QUICK HIT AT FARRIERS
Two hours, two thirties to 39lb 12oz
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.”
Duncan’s 39lb 12oz Farriers Lake common.
The second of the two thirties at 32lb 4oz.
