Drennan Team England International Steve Hemingray enjoyed a visit to his local Shearsby Valley Lakes near Leicester recently, where he produced a match winning 136lb net of carp! They were all caught on pole fished meat, set very shallow. Steve’s successful tackle consisted of Drennan Polemaster Yellow Carp Bungee (10-12) to 0.16mm Double Strength main line and a 0.14mm hook length. To this was tied a size 16 Kamasan B911 hook, under a 0.2g Drennan carp 4 Pole Float set at just 10ins deep.
This is a very effective tactic particularly in warm weather when the fish are up in the surface layers! Steve is pictured here with just a few of the ‘lumps’ from the 28 fish catch.
