Korda man brings Hendrix out to play at over 42lb.

Braving the recent heavy rain was well worth the soaking for Korda-backed carper Dave Levy after his tactics proved the downfall of this stunning 42lb 6oz mirror.

Known as Hendrix, the mighty specimen was the topping on an eight fish haul from Essex’s Cleveley Mere that also included two thirties and a number of twenties.

Fishing tight to an overhanging bush on an island, Dave tripped up all of his carp using a combi rig made up of Korda IQ fluorocarbon and Supernatural braid, and using a size 8 Korda Kaptor wide gape hook. This was fished over a bed of Activ-8 boilies and tiger nuts.
