back after a 7 year break
Posted 27 May 2013 - 04:41 PM
Ive picked up where i left off, same water targeting the same fish. A large ghost carp.
The water holds a small head of carp 5/6 large fish.
Just before i stopped i had caught 4 fish out of ther. All virgin fish 15lb/16lb/17lb and a 20lb 8oz common.
Had a dream last night that i caught a big common out of the pond on floating bread.
The mrs went out this morning so i went with rod and line and bread.
First cast 10min in to the session resulted in a 24lb virgin common.
Il post pics later.

It dosnt look big in the picture, not sure if thats because my friend was stood up taking the picture and i was knelt down but i assure you tt is 24lb. Finger end to wrist is 8in for scale
Just been back now but missed the only take.
And you only get one chance in this pond.
