30lb mirror on a day-ticket

This 30lb 10oz mirror was the highlight of a trio of specimens caught by Paul Rose during a day session on Anglers Paradise’s Specimen Carp Lake.

The 32-year-old from East Sussex landed a 23lb 7oz common within 10 minutes of positioning his rods in the margins of the shallow end of the Devon venue.

A 25lb 5oz mirror then graced his net before he saw a large fish crash out close to an island in front of his swim and he wasted no time casting towards it. An hour passed by before a screaming take resulted in a 30lb 1oz mirror on the bank.

Nash Monster Squid Purple boilies mounted on size 8 Nash Fang Twister hooks and braid hooklinks did the business for Paul.
