I first came across ‘The Local Lin’ when Sticky Baits posted a picture of it on their social media and I remember thinking, what a carp it was! A unique fish, jet black with a tiny mouth and a very small tail and I knew it had gone over the 40lb mark! I done a bit of digging around to find out who ran the syndicate and as it happens, I was friends with the guy on social media, a guy called James. I was only chatting to James a couple of weeks ago. So, without hesitation I dropped James a message asking if I could put my name down the waiting list and with that James said I could have a ticket whenever I wanted one. So, me being me I jumped at the chance and being only 5 minutes from my house it would be rude not to.
