Real and fake corn produces five fish to 25lb

Casting tight to an overhanging tree produced a five fish catch for James Peskett during a session at Parc Farm One on the Great Linford Lakes complex – this 25lb mirror the highlight.

The Waters Edge Bait and Tackle Team member also landed carp of 22lb, 18lb, 16lb and 15lb during a short eight hour day session on the venue in Milton Keynes.

He said: “I tried a selection of baits to see what was working best, and the only thing I could get a bite on was a combination of fake and real corn over a handful of corn.”

James mounted his hookbaits on size 8 Vardis D-Rig hooks and supple uncoated braid hooklinks.
