After last weeks Carping session the bug has got me and today's session on the canal was to try and catch a Carp. It was cold and to be honest I didn't think I had a chance to bag anything but baits were positioned and I sat back and waited for a take.
About an hour into the session the bobbin on my right hand rod slammed against the blank and the line pulled up bow tight as something sprung the trap.
After a brief scrap a lovely mirror one ounce short of nineteen pounds graced the bottom of the net.
