An ounce short!

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.

An ounce short of nineteen
Sadly, this was the only fish of the day.


  1. Forgive my prying Roger, but that don't much look like a canal in the back ground.
