Scales for days!
It doesn’t matter how difficult the conditions may appear, there is always a chance of a bite!
A freezing-cold northerly wind blowing directly at him made for an uncomfortable day’s angling on Farlows Lake 2 for Richard Charalambides, but any discomfort was soon forgotten when he slid his net under this breath-taking scaly mirror.
Weighing in at 23lb 10oz, the fish is typical of the beautiful fish in Lake 2 and, like so many carp before it, a PB pop-up proved its downfall. Rich fished his hookbait over a mixture of Switch and SLK crumb, along with some Crayfish Mini Mix pellets and corn.
