What was in the water couldn't have been any better if Danny Fairbrass, himself, had cast out
Kit for this gig was fairly standard fare. Two Mk IV's, Mitchell 300's and "Robin Red" 12 mm pellets with an IB plastic maize pop-up. I'm not fishing for big fish, this is scamping at the very base level. It turned out to be rather enjoyable. I had four bites, landing three fish, two carp and a bream, which, at 4 lbs 2 oz. is the largest one I've caught since 1992!

4 lbs 2 oz of carp bait snaffling "nuisance" - except it's not! I was very happy with the result.
