Alan Thomas caught this surprise double-figure carp on the pole during a late-night tench session on the Great Ouse.
“I was using my Red Range Carp 11m at 9m with black Hydro,” he explained. “The float was made from a clear Drennan body with a top from an insert float to take a Drennan mini Night Light. I used 0.23mm Supplex main line, a 0.19mm Supplex Fluorocarbon hooklength to a 16 Wide Gape baited with a one-inch piece of worm. The fish was in beautiful condition and fought incredibly hard!”
