30lb common from Nene Valley

This 30lb common was caught by Luke Griffiths during a recent session on a tricky five-acre gravel pit in the Nene Valley.

The 25-year-old Peterborough-based landscape gardener found success when he offered a Mainline Baits Milky Toffee pop-up hookbait on a clear area over a scattering of the new Hybrid boilies.

After a spirited scrap he got his prize to the bank with the help of a hinged-stiff rig constructed with a Fox Coretex Matt boom section and a 25lb Rigidity pop-up section attached to an Arma Point SR hook.
