Quick trip down to horseshoe this morning.
Aim was to catch a few carp on paste. Fished paste over
pellet at 6m. It started with iffy bites from silver's but
the carp turned up after about 15mins. They would not
however stay around for long. And when the sun came out it
got harder. Anyway Jon popped along for a chat and to
photograph the fish (carp in the keepnet by special
permission). 15 carp up to 5lb and about 10lb of silvers.
Nice day out.

Tunde and Alan. We
would like to thank you for the lovely opportunities we had
so far at Bromeswell Fishing Lakes. We fished there on the
10th of September, 14 and 15th of October. It is a fantastic
venue specially because I have never done carp fishing
before these 3 dates.
Between 2 of us we had 10 fish out of the lake and we lost
about 7. point was today when we had a double take
what we thought it is near to impossible to have a fish each
at the same time. Kind Regards and Thank You Again

tight to the far margin. With a balanced white pop up.
This 15lb 4oz.Common.was the

The only known Greater Sleeper fish in
carp banked this morning. I was after some of the better roach & had
changed to a single piece of corn in an effort to get through the
small fish. Needless to say, on a float set-up & centre pin loaded
with 4lb line it gave a good account of itself! No idea what she
weighed, I had scales with me that I use for chub fishing & they
banged down at their limit of 12lbs. Looking at the scale pattern on
its right shoulder & upper flank & comparing it to shots on your
gallery, I believe it may be a mid-double thatís been banked before
by Nigel Crowley & Dan Johnston. See what you think.
