Richie Spracklen – 35lb 8oz Big Leather MirrorPallatrax Angling
Richie, one of the longest users I know of our tactics and baits, continues from where he last left off on his far from easy syndicate lake with another hatful of stunning carp to his name!
Richie’s catch report as follows; “The rod tore off, the fish stayed at distance hugging the far margin for about 10 minutes, foot by foot I guided her to my bank, she felt heavy and I saw a flank and knew she wasn’t a common. When she got to the rod tip I saw she was one of the almost leathers we have, she had used up most of her energy at distance and behaved well to glide over the net cord. Looking into the net I was 95% certain I had a fish known as the Big Leather. On weighing she whipped the scales round to 35lb 8oz, my second biggest fish from the syndicate and my first capture of her in nearly three years.
She was caught on a Crave 18mm frozen bottom bait, 25lb Steamlink hooklink, my 1 million year old Stonze weight (fished Heli style) over a bed of Pellet, Sweetcorn and a few Crave freebies – I am one happy fisherman!”
Fabulous results once more, Richie, you really prove how efficient our tactics and baits can be and your track record speaks for itself!
