Pursuing pond carp and a last cast result

It’s the sort of place where any carp, regardless of size, is going to be a massive result.

After a few roach, I had a slight tap on the rod tip and struck into something that was obviously not a redfin!

It went straight – as you would expect – into lilies, where it became well and truly embedded.

I couldn’t coax it out, so I let some line off and waited.

It can go one of two ways when you do that.
