Is this the best haul of river carp ever?
Fresh from catching a 42lb 10oz Thames mirror last month, Ash Geden has gone even better with this mindblowing 44lb 14oz river linear as part of a 90lb haul in three hours.
The Berkshire angler had takes at 3am, 4am and 5am on the River Thames to land a 23lb 12oz mirror, a 28lb 12oz ghost common and the massive linear.
Not content with that, he stayed on to land a 35lb 10oz mirror. Just let that sink in!
Ash said: “If catching that 42lb 10oz mirror from the Thames only 19 days ago wasn't good enough, after a few more sessions in the area it had become obvious that they had done the off, so I moved onto plan B, another area I had been prepping for a while.
“I had a feeling they would be there, and after only my first session in the new zone I have just had 90lb+ of carp in three hours.
“Takes at 3am, 4am and 5am resulted in this 23lb 12oz mirror, a 28lb 12oz ghostie common and the cream of the crop, a 44lb 14oz River Thames linear – a new pb!
“Fishing into the daytime then resulted in a 35lb 10oz scaly beauty.”
All Ash’s fish came to Dynamite Complex-T Fluro pop-ups fished over a prebaited area of Complex-T boilies heavily glugged in Sweet Tiger liquid.
