Third mega session in a row for Simon Kenny

The unstoppable Simon Kenny just cannot stop catching 40-pounders at an astonishing rate.

Fishing at RK Leisure’s Horton Church Lake, the 34-year-old’s latest session yielded 10 fish including three over 40lb.

It follows a session which produced a 50 and four 40s, and another 13-fish hit that included five over 40lb.  

That’s 13 carp over 40lb in just three trips to the Berkshire venue.

 The biggest of the latest trip was Scar at 48lb 12oz

The Norfolk angler said: “With my last two Horton hits coming from the Plateau swim obviously I was very keen to get back in this area and sure enough the swim was coming free Sunday ready for me to drop straight in.

“Rigs were made and rods were wrapped to the spots I'd had so much success from in the past and sure enough the bites started coming that afternoon.

“Over the course of the next 96 hours I managed 10 carp with three over 40lb.

“I can't believe I'm still getting action from that area. I've had 36 bites now from that swim in three trips.”
