Garry Atkin got the fish feeding on the surface for a true brace of day-ticket carp totalling nearly 77lb.
The 41-year-old bagged a 43lb 2oz common and a 33lb 12oz mirror from Kingfisher Lake at Bluebell Lakes in Northamptonshire.
The fish came within minutes of each and were then followed the next day by a trio of thirties. Garry has been in fine form on the venue lately and caught a 32-pounder the weekend before.
The plasterer told Carpfeed: “The 43lb 2oz common came off the surface and the 33lb 12oz mirror on a zig a few inches under the surface.
“Halfway through landing the common the zig rod was away.
“I had been in the swim five or six hours and had been introducing mixers the whole time. The next morning I moved and landed another three fish over 30lb – a 30lb 8oz mirror, a 32lb 4oz common and a 36lb 8oz common.”
Garry, who fed 10mm Nash Key Cray floaters, added: “I have had a couple of 40s in a weekend before over on Dinton’s White Swan [in Berkshire] but that was one each day – these were on the mat together, so a proper brace!”
