Ivan Woodrow has continued his good form, landing a beautiful mirror carp of just over 20lbs from a local syndicate water in Earith.

Harry Green has also continued his success with many great captures whilst fishing the margins at Earith Carp Lakes.

Pre-baiting some margin spots with a few handfuls of bait and waiting for the right moment has paid dividends for Green, whilst using his reliable Sticky Baits Manilla.

Simon Irvine has been having a great time fishing the rivers and drains in Cambridgeshire, first venturing to the River Nene and catching a lovely Barbel on free lined meat.

Trying several different pegs in a short session to locate the fish proved a great tactic for Irvine, who then went to a local Fenland drain to try and target large rudd.

Armed with a loaf of bread as bait it was not long before he landed a beautiful fish of just over 2lb.
