Guy Thorne Collection
Here we have a
collection of big Carp from netted by Guy Thorne over the last couple of years, all caught at Meadow
I arrived at the lake to find the entire lake
decided where I could safely land a fish I set about smashing a channel in the ice. As you can see from photo
the ice was quite thick.
Once I was
happy with the ice I baited my rig with some homemade highly soluble paste. Imagine my surprise when after all
the disturbance an hour after casting out my rod was away. I plunged the rod under the ice as the fish tore line
off my reel, luckily the fish decided to turn around and swim right back to me and went in the net at the 1st
time of asking.
"Come on" I
shouted out feeling elated at such a capture. Now that is a true winter carp.
