Dan Ibbott – Dinton Success
20th August 2018
Dan’s Dinton Result!
Dan Ibbott has been in touch with news of some recent captures from Dinton’s Black Swan venue. The 90 acre pit is highly regarded for its great stock of classic looking carp with a whole ‘chocolate box’, if you like, of stunning and varied fish.
Dan, who works down at the equally famous Yateley Angling Centre, has had a real result, with three completely different and unique looking carp.
First up, a 28lb heavily plated, slate grey mirror typical of the magical Dinton strain. Second up, a long linear with a dear little heart shaped tail, probably the sort of ‘iconic’ Dinton carp we are most familiar with.
Finally, a proper old bruiser of a mirror, a fish known as ‘Not the Unit’ at 42lb 2oz!
Dan’s carefully chosen terminal items to tackle the large and weedy venue consisted of our Leadcore for his leader material, coupled with double ring swivels, heavy rings and hook ring swivels.
