31lb 8oz linear from Darenth Big Lake

This striking 31lb 8oz linear is one of a string of fish to have fallen to Colin Gray recently.

The Solar-backed rod has already qualified for the semi-finals of the BCAC and Eric’s Carp Angling Championships, and is still finding time to get among the fish at Darenth Big Lake.

In his last three overnighters at the Kent water, Colin has banked a 35lb 8oz common, the 31lb 8oz linear and a 20lb-plus common.

All the fish have fallen to Solar’s Pineapple and N-Butyric Acid pop-ups over a bed of Club Mix boilies.
