Youngsters get off to a flying start

John Murphy decided to take a break from fishing at Gingerbread Lake to take his two of his grandsons fishing for the first time as they had expressed an interest. He decided to take them to McGregor Lake where he explained to them how he fished for carp and what to do in case of a run. Sure enough, before long he had a screaming run on one of his two rods and one of his grandchildren rushed forward to strike but, unfortunately, forgot to close the bait runner first. The run was missed. Undeterred, the trio fished on and they went on to enjoy a memorable day’s sport catching mirror carp weighing 10lb 8oz, 12lbs, 13lbs and 18lbs.
