Carl Sharp landed two twenties over the weekend from Cambridgeshire syndicate water Monk's Pit. With the water being very busy, and according to the Wolverhapton-based Solar team member fishing hard due to the pressure, Carl was made up with his two mirrors of 21lb 6oz and 27lb 10oz. Carl used a Seafood Take-Away Corker pop-up presented over a bed of hemp, corn and Seafood Take-Away freebies that he spombed at 80 yards to a small, hard, clear patch. A size 8 Stronghold 101 hook coupled with Solar Easy Strip hook link and setup multi-rig style made up the business end.
