    A single filament of blanket weed on a size 26!

    Failing that, floating bread, bread flake, pellet

      Is that on the rod or pole Phil?

        Oh great!!

        Grass carp up to 35lb can easily be handled on the pole as long as the pole houses a charge for firing a harpoon and a very substantial elastic... say, a doubled up elastic like they use on aircraft carriers to slow the planes down.

        We're not helping this fellow angler much here mate!!

          Serious Answer...

          I use to fish a lake in the Cotswolds that had them to about 9lb. Strange creatures, they would hardly show up then bang you would get 7 or 8 in a sitting.

          To be honest they are dissapointing to catch on the pole, when you hook one there is hardly any fight its like pulling a big old Bream Slab in, although they are nice looking fish a sort of elongated chub. Be careful once they are out of the water and in your landing net as they go " Apesh*t".

          Baitwise I found corn to be the best although i did have a few on chopped worm.

            This one fell to a boillie.
