I walked the rod back to the pod and sunk the line I cast the second rod out a few feet off right hand side if the bank and same again sunk the line as I was setting up a surface setup. My right hand rod ripped off and in come a lovely 13lb 8oz common so same again the rod was walked out to the same place with a hand full of free boilies around it rod was back on the rest and again. Within 20 minutes the rod was off again and in again a common at just over 16lb rod was back out finely set for the night in the bivvy talking away and just after 12 the rod went again screening off lifted into it and felt the fish in the suddenly it felt like it come off. I started reeling in as fast as I could then suddenly it was off again it was still in five minutes later as I slipped it over the net. I seen the darkness of its face but the brightest flanks I've ever seen I said its a ghosti as it put it in the mat it was just glowing so treat it with some carp care, bucket of water slowly over it and put it in the sling to weight 14lb 10oz.
This really is the best looking fish I have landed fish went back rid went back and in to the bivvy for some sleep, five minutes later the left hand rod dropped back so I ran to it and in again a little 9lb common. Rod back went back out with a few scattered boilies and back to sleep I went 4:40 in the morning the right hand rod went again so I run staggering to the rods pulled into it and in come this cracking dark mirror at just over 11lb. That was it for the rest of the action for me but what a great 12hrs with one special looking carp on the bank till next time tight lines and wet nets
