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.
