Another day, another carp

I continued fishing Leland Water (Cambridgeshire, UK) over the weekend after Friday’s success and this afternoon (Sunday) I hooked another carp on the same 8lb set-up – intended for tench – I used to accidentally catch the 27lb 15oz fish two days before.

A friend took this photo as it went on another run and my arm was starting to go numb after about 15-minutes of the carp employing various ruses to try and escape, most of them involving underwater root systems and the opposite bank.

About fifteen-minutes into our little tussle...

But,  for the full story about that second big carp, you’ll have to wait until it comes out in Angling Times in a couple of weeks. I also had two nice tench and a bream over the weekend so, in all, it’s been a perfect few days fishing on a wonderful piece of water.
