I'll start off this month if I may.

Went done to my guesting place yesterday armed with a tin of hemp and a couple of pints of maggots and my float rod.

Ended up with 2 tench and 3 carp.

21lb and just shy of 25lb.

Epic battle on the float rod for over 30 mins with both , got weeded up numerous times.

Proper thrilled to land them.

The other carp was a small double.

Just a standard waggler mate.

8lb mainline with a 6lb flouro hooklink.

Fishing 2 inches over depth with a shot about half inch off the bottom.

Just the one today equaling my pb 14lb 8oz. I know it's only small compared to a lot of the fish on here but the photo really doesn't do it justice. It was broad across it's back and quite chunky. 👍 

Well done finchey great result.

I used my newly tied multi rigs, they work a treat well made up with them. On one of them I didn't use a hook bead but on ever cast I used pva nuggets and no problems with the loop moving.  I will be knocking some more of these up. 👍

Great stuff, they do seem to work well I think, I tend to use a nugget too better safe and all that

Have you watched the Julian cundiff multi rig video, I've been copying the way he uses them on his, he actually uses two on his seems to work really well. 👍

I don't believe this!! The last time I brought Liddy up here she caught two to my blank... She's now just landed a 30.5 Linear. And it's a named fish. I'm never going to live this down!!

I think it should be renamed Big Lin is a bit of a boring name isn't it,

LIDDY'S LIN has a lot more character is there a deed pole for carps? 

I'd love it to be called that Geezer. But it won't. She's not a member..... although she is now thinking of joining. It would be good because she'd be the only lady member.
