Long range tactics fool 36lb 8oz mirror

Long range tactics proved successful for Jim Kelly who caught this 36lb 8oz mirror carp from a spot at 110yds at Grenville Lake, Cambridgeshire.

The Staffordshire-based rod fooled the chunky specimen with a Quality Baits Complex 42 hookbait fished over a scattering of freebies on a 6ins ESP Strip Teaze hooklink knotless-knotted to a Kamasan B745 hook.

Jim said: “This is a new bait which I’ve been developing for Quality Baits and the results to date have been outstanding.”
