43lb 6oz carp from Belgian canal.

Fox’s Belgian consultant Chris De Clercq has had a fantastic result whilst fishing on a heavily pressured canal. Chris had enjoyed some great success from the venue last autumn and he couldn’t resist having another go in the hope he could bank another of the venue’s special carp.

For Chris’ first night he baited with a light spread of Cell boilies and fished a homemade Cell corkball popup on a 360 rig over the top. He tied the rig using 20lb Illusion Flurocarbon on a size 4 Arma Point LSC hook with a Micro Ring Swivel held in place by the Edges Hook Beads. This was presented on a simple Safety Lead Clip Setup with a 4oz lead.

Chris couldn’t believe his luck when, on the first night, he bagged one of the venue’s largest residents. It was a gorgeous mirror weighing 19.8KG (43lb 6oz). Needless to say, Chris was over the moon with the capture!
