Pair of carp from The Avenue total 90lb

A 36-hour session at The Avenue yielded two fish for 80lb to Paul Thomas.

The West Wales angler banked mirrors of 42lb and 38lb using just a handful of bait over each rod.

The builder fished Sticky Krill White Ones pop-ups on chod rigs at the Shropshire water and said: “The fish were caught tight to an island at about 40 yards.

“The first one arrived at 3.30am and the second fish came from the same spot, which I had topped up with a couple of handfuls of 20mm Krill boilies, at midnight.”
