34lb common carp from Farriers Lake

This 34lb 4oz common was the highlight of Duncan Arrandale’s latest session on the Carp Society’s Farriers Lake.

Both of the 39-year-old’s rods were positioned over a clearing in the weed at 35 yards range over around a kilo of Mistral 20mm 4Season boilies.

He said: “From first light there was a lot of fizzing over the spot and after landing a couple of tench I finally got the pick-up I was hoping for.”

Duncan beat his prize with a size 6 Fox Arma Point SSSP hook attached to a Korda Mouthtrap and ACE Camo Core hinged-stiff rig.
