Jerry Hammond is at the top of his carp fishing game at the moment and his latest impressive capture through what’s been a tough winter for many is this magnificent 38lb fully-scaled mirror carp from Frimley No3.
Jerry, star of the Compulsive Angler series was fishing the venue near Farnborough using a Zig rig approach with a tiny piece of black foam fished at three feet.
The tactic accounted for three fish over a 48-hour session – the first a 19lb common carp, the second a 28lb common and finally the fully scaled mirror which was one of his target fish at the water, which is regarded by some as the best venue for 30lb plus commons in the UK.
Jerry is soon to start work on on an ambitious new TV project with FISHING TV chronicling his carp fishing, which is due to appear on the TV channel in 2015.
The first of his Compulsive Angler DVDs is available to view online at www.fishingcinema.tv .
