39lb Black Common

The trophy winning image from our Fishing trip to France on a misty morning.

A tough fishing week due to the changing weather saw this black Common Carp at 39lb win me back the trophy which I lost to Stuart last year.

For the anglers, this was caught at 80 yards, in a clearing in the weed, using the following set up.
15lb fox soft steel main line with an in line/running 4oz lead, with suffix camo 15lb hinged 8" rig to a size 8 mugga barbless hook. The bait was an 18mm Rosehip bottom boilie tipped with a 10mm pineapple pop up in a snowman arrangement.

A one tone screamer followed.
