This was a special Christmas present from Huw‘s wife and Cai’s mum Sarah. The brilliant Woodlands View Fishery near Droitwich in Worcestershire was the chosen venue.

It was an overcast morning with a warm South Westerly wind. Both anglers started on the pole at 6mts loose feeding with 4mm hard feed carp pellets with 2 red maggots on the hook. Cai was the first to catch and was soon catching a fish every put in. Huw was catching some larger carp and really enjoying the big fish action. The afternoon saw some larger fish move into Cai’s swim.

We left the bank at about 4pm and although neither of them had used keepnets I guess they had caught about 50lbs of fish each.
