New pb carp for England Ladies match ace Sammie Perkins

England Ladies match angler, Sammie Perkins, has recently turned her hand to specimen carp fishing and has broken her pb with this 40lb 10oz mirror from a southern stillwater.

The impressive fish was fooled by the 20-year-old Nottingham-based rod with a snowman hookbait consisting of a Dynamite Baits Spicy Peanut bottom bait tipped with a 10mm pineapple pop-up. She also landed a new pb common of 33lb 10oz during the trip.

Sammie mounted her hookbaits on 25lb Fox Coretex Silty Black hooklinks and size 6 Arma Point XSC hooks with a Line Aligna Sleeve.
