Big surface rudd pair

Big-fish hunter Iain McDonald topped off what he called ‘one of his best summer’s rudd fishing’ by slipping the net under this fine brace of specimens.
Weighing 2lb 5oz and 1lb 10oz, both fish were tempted on breadflake fished up in the water during a session on Kent’s Stonar Lake.
The Canterbury angler, who has banked numerous specimen rudd over 2lb this season, also netted a 20lb 9oz carp during the same session using a float rig consisting of 4lb mainline and a size 12 Drennan Specialist hook.
