Drayton Reservoir’s carp have really woken up with bailiff Mark Ryder reporting some stunning bags of double-figure fish.

One angler banked no less than 1000lb of carp in one 24-hour session, including five over the 20lb mark, topped by a fish of 27lb 2oz.
He had over 100 carp in all, all of them falling to boilies fished alongside a PVA bag of pellets. There’s no retention of fish at Drayton, and all were weighed immediately and returned.
