Early loss of big fish soon for­got­ten

Angling Times (UK) - - CARP NEWS -

LEWIS READ con­tin­ued his re­mark­able au­tumn run by bank­ing this 49lb 4oz mir­ror from Welling­ton Coun­try Park this week.

The im­pres­sive fish, which is bizarrely called the The Un­known, fell to a pop-up boilie pre­sented over 1.5kg of free­bies at 120 yards range and helped Gard­ner Tackle em­ployee Lewis to for­get about the loss of a big fish ear­lier in the day.

“To be hon­est, it was a re­ally lucky cast. I was aim­ing to get my rig close to the over­hang­ing branches of a tree on the end of an is­land, but it landed right un­der it – per­fect!

“Once hooked, the fish gave a good, solid fight and I was blown away to nab another one of the lake’s big mir­rors,” said Lewis.

“It was the per­fect tonic fol­low­ing the dev­as­tat­ing loss of a big fish on Satur­day morn­ing af­ter it kited into a snag.”

Just a day later Lewis then rounded off the week­end in fine style by bank­ing a chunky 30lb 8oz com­mon carp from Pit 4 at Frim­ley in Sur­rey.

He said: “I was chuffed to bits with this one be­cause I’ve been putting in a fair amount of ef­fort at the venue in be­tween my trips to Welling­ton Coun­try Park.”

Lewis Read with yet another of the venue’s A-Team.
