    As i have related a few times i have a love/hate relationship with Burraga dam and its mega sized carp, one trip in three you do well, one average and the other you bomb out.
    When I arrived today I thought it was a disaster as all i could see was spawning carp, but if you keep searching the odd feeder could be found.
    Then about lunch time they must have been hungary after all the energy expended and started feeding heavily. What a cracker of a day, 7 hooked, 6 landed smallest 66cm and 9lb, another 9lber, a 11lber, two 14lbers and my new PB of 87cm and 27lb. Tail span was 30cm, girth was 64cm, i had to get wet to land her, as she got into the weed on me.
    I felt as though I had taken a pea shooter to a gun fight but eventually i was able to land the biggest carp I have ever seen in the flesh.
    If my young mate, would be good enough to put some pics up I would appreciate it.
    Tight lines Pete

    Mate if it had not run out into weed, i might still be chasing it. I was only using a 6wt, and the carp in this high country lake are immensly strong even at 10lb. I got broke on 12lb tippet in the same spot the week before. Actually I got broke again yesterday to, too slow letting go the flyline.
