Customer Comment - a Carp Talk write up from Ian (ting tong) MacMillan

The morning turned to early afternoon and while the Beech (big fish Dave) and I were sipping tea with a biscuit Lloyd (baby) and Clarkey (wealthy) were cracking open the lager for a spot of afternoon tiffing (repeated everyday).

I reckon they were only on about their 8 or 9th bottle when out of the blue Baby pulled into a fish, we hadn’t seen any fizzing or showing, just a bite out of nowhere.  Baby played this fish for ages and I’m sure until he saw it was actually a carp that it could have been the big daft 120lb cat in the lake, but Clarkeys lady like screams soon verified it was indeed a very big carp.  

Keith was on hand with the camera and a new personal best of 51.4 was recorded for Baby, but what a beast of a fish, and 5lb up in weight from its last capture, again testimony to Keith’s ethos of not stuffing the lake full of smaller fish which only restricts growth and over populates the biomass.

The beers were on Baby that night but with cooler nights still I wasn’t sure how the bites would transpire but the following day saw me add a couple of 37s to my tally which again I was more than happy to take considering the cooler nights.

All went quiet for 36 hours in swim Tong but I got the call from Beech (big fish Dave) at first light that he’d landed his first fish of the week. I legged it down and it honestly looked like a bloody grenade had gone off in his swim, the other two rods were off the rest in the water, he was standing there with no shoes on, but the main thing was the fish was in the net.  

The smile on his face is everything that’s right about carp fishing, he was so excited and over the moon to of landed one that I wish I could bottle that exact moment for ever.  He was shaking like mad so I sort of took charge of the situation and let him calm down a bit, it was then that I glimpsed into the net and saw what he’d gone and landed.
