Back on the bank for a fine 40lb 2oz common

After an enforced break from fishing due to a bad back, Hadley Ever returned to a southern water park and took this fine 40lb 2oz common.
With a warm south-westerly wind blowing Hadley headed to a swim he had caught from in the past and targeted an area of silt at 40 yards range.
He said: “The silt has produced many of my fish this winter as it’s no doubt full of natural food and a key spot in attracting carp to the banquet.”
Due to the claggy lakebed, Hadley fished rigs incorporating supple braid hooklinks which lay flat over the contours.
He attached a CC Moore Pacific Tuna hardened hookbait to the hair and baited up with a scattering of freebies.
