Hi took out the shrimp boilies and took two of them out of the packet then using his little bait drill he drilled a hole through both balls of bait in the centre and right through then he used the tool to feed the hair through and placed a plastic clip at the bottom so that the hair couldn’t come out.

 He switched on the bait alarms the asked Susan to watch as he casted the bait out.

“Your turn.’

 Susan held the line the way Harry had shown her after lifting the bail arm and Susan casted out like a pro.’

“Well done, now place it on the rod frame now the yellow weights on the line are yours and the red ones mine when the weight drops and the alarm goes off pick up and strike like this. Harry showed her using his other rod. And she nodded. When all the baits were in the water they put up the four man bivouac which only took them about ten minutes. Harry put down a rolled up piece of foam on top of the built in ground sheet and then took out the two rolled up sleeping bags. He left them rolled so they could be used as pillows. He then climbed inside and lay down.

Susan followed him and snuggled up beside Harry. They were soon asleep as the quietness of the lake overcame them and they could only hear the odd bird chirping.

It was seven thirty; they never heard other people arriving and setting up. They slept soundly right until nine o’clock when the sound of a bite alarm woke them both and they quickly got out of the bivvy.’

“It’s yours Susan, now wind the slack line in then strike. She was so excited but did as Harry had told her.

“Let him run Susan, we must play the fish and tire him out a bit. Only wind when he comes in this way towards us. Don’t let him go into those reeds over there turn him, that’s it Susan now I’ll get the camera just let him run a bit longer.

Harry got his camera and began to take shots of Susan as she wound in the slack and played the fish.

As the fish got nearer Susan could see him on the top of the water. It was a huge fish, it was powerful but she worked it towards the net that Harry was holding. There was quite a bend in the rod as Harry lifted the fish onto the bankside and on the clanging mat.

“It’s a big mirror carp Susan well done.

Now can you bring me my weighing net and scales please from my tackle box Susan?’

Harry used his hands to scoop water from the lake over the fish which seemed to calm the fish and he stopped flapping about.

He used his special tool to unhook the fish then asked Susan to hold the fish whilst he took some shots. Susan looked like a model as she threw back her beautiful blonde hair and held the carp.

“When Harry had taken a few shots from different angles he took hold of the enormous fish and placed it in the weight net and asked Susan to lift it whilst he took another shot. The picture showed the weight of the carp which was thirty nine pounds.

Harry then took the fish from her and walked down to the water’s edge and held the fish in the water until it had recovered and with a quick swish of its tail and it disappeared. It had taken twenty minutes to land the fish and Susan was Euphoric
