  • Personal Best ....

    Hello to you all ..... it's been a while since Iposted here, but life is busy at the moment!!

    Anyway, I'm stll thoroughly enjoying the fishing, as is my partner and I'm learning lots, finding that I have strange ways of doing things that aren't quite the "norm" (according to my fishing pals!!)

    I just thought I'd share my good fortune of last weekend. We (partner and I) went to Peatling Pools in Leicestershire for the day ...... Not bad ..... a few Bream using a feeder, a perch then a personal best mirror carp of 12 pounds.

    I was really pleased to land the beast, especially as I'm still on fairly light tackle.
    A while later, I was feeding od hair-rigged luncheon meat when I got another bite which was alot more of a fight and spent 15 minutes or so playing the fish ....... which turned out to be an 18 pound Mirror carp ........ Fantastic!!

    Not a huge fish by the standards of some of you no doubt, but for me a real achievement!
