The time-old phrase ‘like father, like son’ certainly applies to John and Charlie Terry after the pair both landed 40lb English carp within hours of each other.
Fishing a southern syndicate water, first dad John latched into a much targeted 41-pounder known as ‘Black Spot’ after fishing a small, weed-free area using Mad Baits Nutz boilies – his eighth UK 40lb plus carp.
Not to be outdone, son Charlie spent half an hour up a tree spotting fish and locating an area he could feasibly target them, before landing the biggest fish in the lake and a new personal best at a whopping 49lb 8oz.
It fell for a two-inch snowman blowback set-up, set up solid bag style, and again fell to Mad Baits Nutz bait.
John Terry with his ‘forty’, but his son Charlie wasn’t to be beaten…
