Winter Warmers!

Robert Livock managed to fish the River Ivel at Sandy on a morning when the river was not in flood but it took nearly an hour before his rod tip registered a delicate bite. He recast and the same thing happened again with just a minor tremor. However, on his third cast his bait was taken and he struck into a powerful fish. When it was finally netted, it turned out to be a pristine 9lb 12oz common carp. He recast to the same spot and, within a few minutes, found himself playing another good fish, this time another common carp weighing 8lb 8oz. Later in the session he finally landed his intended quarry, a 4lb chub and called it a day before 1pm.
