PB common for Bartropp

EXPERIENCED carp angler has landed his second forty in as many weeks from Wellington Country Park in the form of this personal best 49lb 12oz common.

The impressive specimen was taken by the Essex-based Mistral Baits and Gardner Tackle-backed rod on his favoured hinged-stiff rig which was tied using a 15lb Tripwire curved pop-up section and a size 5 Gardner Covert Chod hook.

On to this he mounted one of his own Mistral 4Season Fluro White pop-ups.
