Syn­di­cate rod adds 44lb 8oz com­mon to im­pres­sive tally

Angling Times (UK) - - CARP NEWS -

JAMIE Pea­cock com­pleted a quar­tet of tar­get fish within six months with the cap­ture of this 44lb 8oz com­mon.

The fish, known as the Cut Tail Com­mon, fol­lows on from the cap­ture of Clarissa at 53lb 4oz and the Long Com­mon at 38lb in Jamie’s first full year on Deepings One in Lin­colnshire.

The Peter­bor­ough an­gler said: “This year was my first full year on Deepings One, hav­ing only joined last sum­mer.

“I’ve man­aged to land a few nice fish, in­clud­ing Clarissa at 53lb 4oz on my birth­day week­end in April, which was a great present! A cou­ple of weeks later I had Black Scar at 48lb 12oz.

“In Au­gust I had the Long Com­mon, slightly down in weight at 38lb. This fish had to be one of the hard­est-fight­ing I have ever caught and it went men­tal for about 15 min­utes.

“Af­ter pick­ing up these fish fairly quickly I thought the Cut Tail Com­mon would take me a long time to catch, so when I had it at the week­end I could not be­lieve it – I was blown away.”

Jamie added: “I turned up on Fri­day at around 3.30pm and saw the swim I wanted was free. I chose the swim be­cause I had been reg­u­larly catch­ing from it for the last month.

“There are two is­lands to fish to and they gave me shel­ter from the east­erly wind which was blowing all week­end, so I was con­vinced there would be a few fish gath­ered in the area.

“I got the rods out on the spots

at around 80 yards and Spombed out about a kilo of Nash Key Cray boilies on each one.

“The next morn­ing at around 8.30am I had a sin­gle bleep and no­ticed the line was mov­ing. The fish was kit­ing but not tak­ing any line off the spool, so I hit into it and started to bring it back, but it didn’t re­ally do much un­til I had it un­der the tip, when it gave a few pow­er­ful runs.

“At first I thought it was a small fish, as it was shak­ing its head, but when I saw it boil up on the sur­face I knew it was a good one.”
