Fourth pb for Paul Garner with 4lb-plus golden orfe

Paul Garner has been on an incredible run of form recently and he caught his fourth personal best in as many months when he slipped the net under this 4lb 9oz 8 dram golden orfe.

Due to the high temperatures the Nash Peg One consultant decided to fish up-in-the-water with a simple waggler rig and sprayed maggots over the top of his float at Newdigate Fisheries in Sussex.

His maggot hookbait was boosted with Nash Monster Squid flavouring and he beat the specimen with 4lb mainline, a 3lb hooklink and a size 18 hook.

“It was great fun to spot the orfe as they cruised through the swim and the fishing was so good that I also caught several tench just below the surface,” said Paul.
