This was a joint present from their family, it was for Paul’s 50th and Neale’s 60th birthdays.

The wonderful Decoy lakes near Whittlesey in Cambridgeshire was the chosen venue.

It was a very warm morning with just a light southerly wind. I decided that Elm lake with its big head of barbel and carp would be a good choice.

Both anglers love to fish rod and line so I just attached a .6 gram pole rig to the main line and they fished just off their rod end with a 5mm banded pellet on the hook loose feeding with 4mm Van Den Eynde hard feed carp pellets. The reel clutch was set lightly to prevent any breakoffs.

The fishing was so good that they had both reached their 50lb net limit by midday and were returning fish as they caught them.

We left the bank at about 4pm after some brilliant nonstop action. I guess both of them had caught close to 150lbs each.
