McGregor Carp

He returned to the lake later in the week with Robert Livock but it was Robert who saw most of the action. Within the first hour, he had a good run netting an 11lb 7oz mirror carp and soon after was playing another good fish when the hook came out. Thereafter, the swim died as gale force winds made casting and bait presentation difficult.
