Kev hauls at Linear Hardwick!


The biggest fish of the session, a cracking 34lb 12oz common

Kev Hewitt has just got back from a very productive session on Linear Fisheries Harwick lake, with the new Cryogen Curve-Shanx helping to do the business. Well done Kev!


Kev’s set up on the road bank at Hardwick

The fishing has really picked up on Linear fisheries in recent weeks so I decided to head down to Hardwick for the night. I was at the lake bright and early, just in time to see a few fish give themselves away. It was Sunday morning and one angler was up early and packing away for 9am. I decided to drop in after him as I had seen a couple show in the area.

I found a spot at about 75 yards range in the middle of the road bank. A shallow area of around 7 foot which had a light coating of silk weed.


Components for the deadly effective Ronnie rig

With some new additions to the ESP range, I decided to try the Ronnie rig with the new Cryogen Curve Shanx hook in a size 6 (for more info on the new range of Cryogen hooks ). The rig had been doing the rounds for a fair while and I have to admit I am a big fan of the way it works. The size 6 hook and QC ring swivel is the perfect weight to slowly sink a CC Moore Northern special pop up.


Another one from Kev’s haul

With there being a light coating of weed on the spot, I fished a longer hooklength than I would if I were fishing a clear spot. Throughout the session I hooked 12 and landed 11 fish including a number of good twenties and topped my catch with a stunning 34Lb 12oz common.

The Ronnie rig has done the business for me this week and is definitely a rig worth having in your armoury’.

Tight lines, kev.
