31lb 4oz common best of nine

MICKY French landed this cracking 31lb 4oz common as part of a nine fish haul during a four night session at Yateley Sandhurst Lake.

The Diem-backed rod took all of his fish during a 28 hour feeding spell before the weather took a turn for the worse with heavy snow bringing an end to the action.

Micky told Angling Times: “This was the first time I have ever fish Sandhurst. I caught all nine carp on Carp Company OCM boilie hookbaits which were mounted on rigs comprising Rig Marole Skinfull hooklinks and 4oz leads.”
