James Barrett - The best laid plans - Linch hill

Sometimes plans go awry but every cloud has a silver lining as James Barrett found on his recent visit to oxfordshires Linch Hill.

With the carp starting to spawn one night into James Barretts weeklong session on Linch hill’s Stoneacres a change of plan was in order.

Starting off on Willow James managed one mirror of 18.08 over two nights before another change of lake saw him moving onto Christchurch for the remainder of his trip. Having only fished the lake once before some five years previously he wasn’t sure what to expect – What transpired was an incredible few days of fishing, with six carp finding his net including some of the most sought after and best looking carp in the lake including Ben's Common at 40.15 and Little Pecs at 36.08.
