Stella makes it a 50 four-pack!

Dan Taylor racked up his fourth different fifty of 2015 with this 51lb 12oz mirror carp caught over the Christmas break.
The Ashford angler tempted the big mirror, known as Stella, from Essex Manor and went on to land the sought-after Northern Linear at 42lb 12oz in the same session.
Describing the capture of the fifty, he said: “She was in immaculate condition and at her biggest weight, topping off an incredible year for me. It’s left me lost for words!
“I went on to brace it with one of the ones I really wanted, the Northern Linear at 42lb 12oz.”
Dan’s four fifties in 2015 came from two waters, and his latest success came during a Boxing Day session at Essex Manor.
“I had set my sights on a winter lump,” said Dan, “and with the weather in my favour I decided on a couple of nights on my syndicate just after Christmas.
“I was fishing to a reed-lined far margin, baiting with a kilo of new Amber Chocolate boilies on test from Nash Bait. After a slow, deep battle I was able to scoop Stella up first time as she filled my net!”
Dan used white 15mm Nash Citruz pop-ups mounted on multi rigs made with 15lb Nash Combilink and size 6 Chod Twister hooks.
