First forty of the year for Ted Bryan

Ted Bryan has caught his first forty of the year in the shape of this 40lb 10oz mirror from a Kent club water.

The fish was the best of four which the Sydenham-based specimen hunter had during his session, which also included three twenties to 28lb 12oz.

All of his carp were taken on 15mm Nash Amber Strawberry pop-ups which were hair-rigged on size 8 Nash Fang X hooks and Nash Bullet mono hooklinks over around 20 free offerings.
