Fifty, forty and a thirty in a session

NOT many anglers can boast of catching a fifty, forty and a thirty in a session – but Daren Norman is one man who can now lay claim to the impressive feat.

The Kent-based rod made the 250 mile roundtrip to CWA Fishery’s Roach Pit more than worthwhile when he landed three of the lake’s most sought after residents in a frantic 24 hour period.

After hearing a large carp crash out during the night he moved swims to roughly where he thought the fish had showed. He then located two gravel bars which were baited with 3kg of Sticky Baits The Krill boilies before casting pop-up hookbaits over the top.

Just after first light he banked the venue’s biggest inhabitant at a weight of 50lb 4oz. After topping up the swim with another 2kg of boilies he went on to complete the hat-trick of specimens with mirrors of 44lb 10oz and 37lb 10oz the following morning.
