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!
‘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.
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 http://esp-carpgear.com/news/a-hook-revolution-new-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.
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.
