29lb New UK PB for Sue Graham on Gamma, Gripz, Stonze and Jungle

Catch report in from Sue Graham:

Fishing at Elphicks for the first time and coming out 3rd in the draw for swims, I opted to go to the far end and shallower water as I had seen plenty of signs of fish on our walk round. Over almost 24 hours I could see fish patrolling in my swim and I had tried everything to tempt them including freelining on the surface, so switched to a 5ft zig rig which was around 6 inches under the surface and cast right on top of showing fish. I hadn’t even put the rod down fully when the reel screamed into life and the tip of the rod swung round.

A great battle ensued before I slipped her over the net cord. She weighed in at 29lbs on the nose and another new UK PB for me.

I was fishing on .33 gamma mainline with a small inline Stonze wrapped in method mix with plenty of Dried Naturals to come up through the water columns. The 5ft zig was made from .30 Gamma Edge Fluoro line tied to a size 8 Wide Gape Gripz hook and topped with a heavily glugged 10mm white jungle pop up.
