Tricky arvo/evening session yesterday at Bitterwell Lake - felt like everything went wrong: caught up in a tree, shredded hook links, snagged landing net, spilt bait, hook-in-the finger, hook too big/small, bait bands too big for the mixers, hook pulls... The list goes on!
BUT I did manage to catch my biggest carp so far from the venue on the 2nd to last cast ;) A nice chunky common with a huge mouth and shoulders. Must've been 12/13lb and put up a cracking fight on light gear. Would've loved to get a snap but the feeder rod went off while I was unhooking him ;)
