Wafter hookbait and PVA bag of pellets fool 38lb 12oz common carp

This 38lb 12oz common was the highlight of a six fish haul for Kev Hewitt during a session on a southern gravel pit.

The specimen known as Crinkle Tail was caught by the Cotswold Angling Employee from a marginal spot in 3ft of water with a CC Moore Northern Special dumbbell wafter mounted on a size 8 ESP Curve-Shanx hook and a 4ins 15lb Sink Braid hooklink. This was fished inside a solid PVA bag filled with micro pellets over 1kg of particles.

All of his other fish were caught from a heavily baited spot at 60yds range.
