STUN­NING LIN­EAR BAGS TOP PRIZE

Angling Times (UK) - - TACTICS -

THIS month’s top award goes to Chris Beasley, who banked this truly gor­geous 47lb lin­ear from Din­ton Pas­tures, Berk­shire.

The 29-year-old landed it af­ter a nerve-wrack­ing fight that in­cluded han­dlin­ing in a moun­tain of weed and tak­ing to a boat. It fell to a Sticky Sig­na­ture Squid pop-up on a hinged stiff rig, fished over 5kg of Sticky Krill boilies as loose­feed.

Lin­ear carp don’t come much bet­ter look­ing! Dan Wild­bore was film­ing with Adam Pen­ning at Sand­hurst but man­aged to get his rods out and bag this 41lb 6oz mir­ror known as Pin­head. Ed Bet­teridge used a home­made Main­line Cell wafter to tempt ‘Colin’ at 50lb 10oz from Shal­low La­goon on the St Ives com­plex in Cam­bridgeshire.

Matthew Roberts used an 18mm CC Moore Pa­cific Tuna boilie to bank the Scar Com­mon at 41lb 8oz from Swan Lake on the Blue­bell Lakes com­plex.

Tony Gib­son caught this 50lb 2oz com­mon from Swan Lake on the Blue­bell com­plex. A Dy­na­mite Com­plex-T cork­ball pop-up did the busi­ness.

Dove­cote Lakes in Mil­ton Keynes pro­duced this 45lb 4oz mir­ror for Ja­son Lan­caster on a mix of CC Moore boilies, hemp and corn.

Weigh­ing in at ex­actly 40lb, this mir­ror was joined by a 38lb com­mon for Gard­ner’s Lewis Read at Welling­ton Coun­try Park, Berk­shire.
