Tutorial Result (May 2009).

Harry Pound from Gloucester enjoyed a hectic 24 hours recently at Brasenose-1 Lake at Linear Fisheries with Jon Finch on one of his tutorial sessions. With perfect fishing conditions and plentiful activity from the carp, Harry and Jon decided to fish solid PVA bags and caught fish at all ranges, steady action through the day and at first light produced 19 takes with 15 landed. Harry learnt how successful solid PVA bag fishing can be and will undoubtedly be using his new skills on his local venues.

A mix of Mini Grubber pellets, 3mm Sucka pellets, D-Liver boilies and a generous glug of hemp oil certainly enticed the fish into a feeding frenzy. Harry was amazed of the oil slick the Hemp Oil was giving off and the large slicks created a hive of activity around the baited areas.

As the day progressed the fish sizes got better and it was only a matter of time before one of the rods produced a better fish. Late afternoon and a slow steady take rattled off, as Harry lifted into the fish it was pretty obvious that he was attached to something a bit better, after a few powerful runs and an attempt to weed Harry up the fish decided to eventually make it to the landing net. Harry's eyes lit up as Jon mentioned it might be a 20 pounder and as the scales tipped round to 20lb 6oz Harry was well chuffed.

Harry commented, 'Thank you for an awesome 24 hours carp fishing at Brasenose-1. I caught a new PB 20lb 6oz an absolute chunk'

Jon Commented, 'Its great to see a young angler learning new tricks and appreciating that its not all about catching thirty pounders. Hopefully Harry now has a bit more confidence in his fishing and can also pass on some techniques onto his mates as well. Well done on your new PB.
