16th May 2014, Mirror
Carp caught by George Johnson from Coventry
caught on peg 117, fishing with a Dynamite Baits hooking
pellet over a bed of pellets, close in under an overhanging
tree. George hooked the fish and landed her safely on 6lb line with a size 16 barbless
hook. Well done George! George was also the first person to catch the fish
since being stocked in January 2014 and we have honoured him by calling her
"George" after him.
