Jase Bassett’s annual trip to Cambridgeshire’s big-carp Mecca, Holme Fen, resulted in a three-fish catch, the largest of which was a new personal best at 56lb 12oz.

It proved to be a tricky few days for Jase’s party, with cold temperatures and freezing winds putting the fish off. However, a 15mm SLK wafter fished over a bed of crumbed SLK boilies and SLK pellets soaked in Liver Extract and Betastim proved too much for this chunky mirror to resist, while Jase’s other two fish, a 47lb mirror and a mid-twenty common, fell to Sticky Sweet-coated zigs.
