35lb mirror carp from Farriers Lake

The Carp Society’s Farriers Lake is famed for its big commons, but Rich Seeds tempted this 35lb 15oz mirror from the Gloucestershire venue.

The 31-year-old fishery manager fished 60yds out and caught a total of seven fish during his 24-hour session.

Baiting heavily with 5kg of 20mm Sticky Vor-Tex boilies over each rod, the Hampshire angler presented matching hookbaits on 6ins blowback rigs made with Korda 20lb N-Trap and size 6 Korda Kaptor Kurv hooks.
