    Now folks,

    I have to laugh to mysely wryly. Having only been back into carping a month now and bagging a 21.12 gorgeous mirror on my 1st evening sesh in June, i thought i was gonna slaughter the tricky little North Yorks pond i'm fishing at. I made the mistake of listening to people on about all these new baits/rigs/methods etc and foolishly swapped all my gear about to use these new systems. After 4 further weeks with a bream & tench to show for my efforts i switched back to how i used to fish 5 years ago and on my 1st sesh. 1st night after and i got my PB, a mirror at 24.2, another nice fish. (Not massive i know but good for round here!).

    Moral is, stick to what your happy with and you cant go wrong!!

    and very good advice that is too.

    Nice fish Rob and all the more special because you've caught it in your own way.

    Well done.

    A 24 is a good fish anywhere mate, don't let the lop sided view in the comics let you think differently.

    Congratulations on your new P.B. mate. Around here a fish over the 20Ib mark is still very special.

    forget the 'around here' bit Bryan.
    I think a 20 or even a 15+ is still a very worthy fish, in any part of the country.

    all fish are a result, scrappy singles still teach you a thing or two. low doubles help you define your rigs, mid doubles and above are a defo touch, but a twenty is total confirmation all is well.

    congrats
