Angler bags 120lb of carp off the surface

Surface fishing in the winter sounds like pure madness but Roger Reade proved it should never been dismissed when he used the unseasonal tactic for a 119lb catch during a session at Somerset’s Bullock Farm.

The Solihull-based rod was enjoying a relaxing break at the complex and decided to go against the grain by using bread on the top while targeting the North Pool.

It was a bold move that soon paid dividends, with fish to 8lb falling throughout the day.
