Bluebell comes up trumps for Chris

There’s no better feeling than catching a huge common carp from a day ticket water….just ask Chris Ash, who did exactly that on a visit to the prolific Bluebell Lakes complex at Tansor, just to the west of Peterborough.

The Stevenage rod took the impressive specimen from the venue’s Kingfisher Lake after it picked up his Mainline hookbait at 4.30pm in the afternoon. 

On the scales it pulled the needle round to exactly 40lb.
