Surface caught 33lb 1oz mirror for John Kneebone

This 33lb 1oz mirror known as ‘The Leather’ was caught by John Kneebone during an afternoon floater fishing session on Willow Pool on the Linch Hill complex in Oxfordshire.

The Cornwall-based Fox consultant landed four other carp to 28lb 8oz, all of which were taken on Mainline Baits New Grange pop-ups, which he trimmed down to resemble his Chum Mixer free offerings.

His successful presentation consisted of a 6ft 12lb Fox Zig and Float hooklink and a size 9 Fox Arma Point SSSP hook.
