Braving 50mph winds, chasing Chinese takeaway and catching 40lb commons! We caught up with @luisweltonfishing about his recent trip to Berners Hall day ticket lake in Essex. Here’s how he got on…
“After spending some time pursuing a career in the military I finally got to a stage where I needed to get out on the bank once again. Being that I’d fished for carp from the age of about 7, I figured 4 years was too long a break, so with that, I headed to Berners Hall Fishery where a mate of mine currently works.
I got to the lake around 8:00 am and started to look around for showing fish. Sure enough on my second walk round the 24 acre pit I saw them in the teeth of the strong winds. I went about setting up my gear and getting the rods put together with the naked heli system from Korda onto a heli safe drop off lead system with 3 oz pear bomb.
The rig of choice was a rig similar to a rig I had used in the past with some success but a more updated version. It’s called the Ronnie rig and one that’s being used prolifically around the UK at the moment. I made up an iQ2 boom section and a size 4 Krank hook. With the rigs attached I attached two white pop ups and cast them to a small clear area I’d found, which was no bigger than 6 ft in total!
