Chub Carp Academy Manager, Jason Green has landed a new British PB.
The 44lb 12oz Mirror called Split Tail resides in the well known Wellington Country Park and was caught using a 13ft 3.5Tc Greys Platinum Rod, 15 lb sensor line, Rigmaroles new free fall rig tubing and lead clips and Kordas new soft hybrid hook link with a size 8 centurion hook.
The session did not get off to a good start when Jason hooked and lost a fish after it picked up another anglers line that had cut off and was trailing from a nearby weed bed. However Jason later managed to land a 26lb common.
The 44lb 12oz Mirror put up a good fight, getting weeded up on numerous occasions in the weed, Jason managed to land the largest fish in the lake in the early hours of the morning.
This success follows that of a 71lb French PB caught by Jason in France only two weeks ago.
