CARP – 47 lb 11 oz
70.1% of British record
SPESSY ace Alan Rio set a new PB with this 2 lb 13 oz rudd. The Woking, Surrey, rod visited a local Farnham AS venue. He feeder fished fake corn over hemp and liquidised corn on 6 lb main line and a 4 lb hook link to a size 14 hook.
Alan said: “What a specimen! And what colours it has! At this time of year, big rudd can be caught in the early hours.”
JAMES FOSTER was delighted to land this 47 lb 11 oz mirror carp, called The Nunn, from Essex’s Fryerning Fisheries. He tempted the PB from The Lodge swim on DNA Baits boilies. Fishery manager Charlie Knowles predicts that the fish will hit 50 lb soon.
