Terry Bell with a 15lb 12oz Mirror

Team member, Terry Bell, had an opportunity for an extremely rare 36 hour fishing trip and fancied getting a bit of action so headed straight for a local club water. After a quiet night he was woken by a small tench but no carp.

Having seen the reed stems opposite knocking, Terry walked around and lowered his standard stalking rig consisting of an inline Stonze weight with the rubber insert pushed over a small swivel to which I had a 3-4 inch hooklink with a size 8 Gripz hook whipped on KD style and on the hair was a piece of Jungle squab (he caught on Crave last week, so wanted to mix it up a bit).

The fish kept drifting in and around the area of the bait but not close enough, until suddenly a lovely looking mirror carp drifted over the bait and the rig did its job perfectly! A stunning mirror carp of 15lb 12oz was held up for the camera and he was happy! Terry also landed two more small tench during the trip.
