A Grand Finale – Ben Leuty
8th January 2019
Ben Leuty sees out 2018 in fine style…
With mild temperatures across the country between Christmas and New Year, Ben decided it was too good an opportunity to miss. With well organised kit and faith in his rigs and bait, it was just a case of finding the fish and angling efficiently. With one night to go before New Years Eve, Ben wanted to make the most of his time on the bank and once settled in the result was nothing short of spectacular. Over the course of the trip Ben landed 10 carp from 13 bites, with some right old corkers amongst them!
Ben elected to fish Olive Camo Leadcore leaders heli style, keeping the all important last few feet of the presentation discreet. The disrupted nature of our 45lb leadcore, with it’s subtle colours along every 100mm really does blend in on the lake bed and is incredibly heavy for its diameter!
