Mike’s mighty mix­ture

Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

MIKE Ly­d­don en­joyed a red let­ter day when he banked his sea­son’s great­est mixed bag... made up of cru­cians to al­most 4lb, roach, tench and a per­sonal-best carp.

The Gard­ner Tackle-backed rod spod­ded out a bed of ground­bait at 50 yards and dropped a Method feeder over the top.

Then, in a breath­tak­ing 48-hour stint, he net­ted an amaz­ing 29 cru­cians over 3lb, the best of them go­ing 3lb 15oz.

That was only part of the tale, though. Half-a-dozen tench to 6lb, stacks of qual­ity rudd to al­most 2lb, roach to 1lb 8oz and a UK per­son­albest carp of 34lb also mus­cled in on the act.

All Mike’s fish were beaten on a rig made up with 6lb Gard­ner Hy­droflo main­line to a 4lb Mirage fluoro­car­bon hook­length and a size 16 Tar­get hook.

Mike with the best of his 29 cru­cians over 3lb.
