Steve Briggs brings us his usual round-up of what’s been oc­cur­ring big carp-wise across the con­ti­nent over the last month

Some­thing a lit­tle dif­fer­ent now, a stun­ning mir­ror from Den­mark! While coun­tries such as Den­mark and Swe­den don’t gen­er­ally have the mon­sters that some coun­tries hold th­ese days, what they do have are some in­cred­i­bly beau­ti­ful carp – and here’s one ex­am­ple! Morten Ras­mussen spent 36 hours at Lake Soroe, a Dan­ish pub­lic lake, some 510-acres in size. He baited with three and a half ki­los of Manilla boilies and four ki­los of tigers and peanuts dur­ing the ses­sion. Morten used Manilla hard hook­baits and Sig­na­ture pop-ups, fish­ing a blow­back rig with size 4 or 6 Mugga hooks. Af­ter a long pe­riod of hot, sul­try weather fi­nally some low-pres­sure weather with rain ar­rived, and with de­cent winds too. It was the sign that he had waited for, so he headed out af­ter work hop­ing for some ac­tion and it worked per­fectly! With four fish landed in 36 hours, he was very happy with the re­sult, es­pe­cially as it cer­tainly isn’t an easy wa­ter!
