Forty-year-old carp tops four-fish catch

Baiting heavily helped Spencer Humble catch this 40-year-old mirror as part of a four-fish catch.

The 31lb 12oz fish was the best of the Kent angler’s 15-hour session at Lee Jackson’s Cotton Farm.

He said: “To catch four in such a short session is unheard of, so they were obviously rather keen on the 17kg of the new Nash TG Active I used that day.”

All the fish fell to 15mm pop-ups mounted on combi rigs tied with Nash Fang Twister Chod hooks and 20lb Combi Link and Chod Link.
