SPESSY ace Jason Craven hit the news after the best three months of his fishing career with four personal best in some astonishing catches.

Specimen fish have included this 10 lb 4 oz bream (above), a 3 lb 10 oz perch, 2 lb 12 oz roach and 32 lb 14 oz carp.

They have all fallen during a run of success for the 50-year-old dry lining supervisor from Tonbridge, Kent.

Jason explained: “I had the perch 3 lb 10 oz PB in April from Weirwood Reservoir vertical jigging on my own boat.

“ I followed that with a 55 lb perch catch from a commercial pond on float fished prawn. The catch included fish of 3 lb 7 oz and 3 lb 1 oz plus a bonus 20 lb 8 oz carp on a size 8 hook to a 1.7 lb bottom.

“Then in May I had a roach 2 lb 12 oz PB (pictured above) from New Lagoon near Tonbridge on float fished bread flake. It came in a 120 lb bag that included 44 tench to 3 lb 8 oz and ten bream to 4 lb 14 oz.

“The bream 10 lb 4 oz PB came from Barden Lake on a Venom Baits Maple Nut pop-up boilie.

“Finally the 32 lb 14 oz mirror (pictured below) came from Weirwood Reservoir on a Cherry Baits Pokernut snowman fished at 90 yards.

“All in all, a fantastic season so far,” concluded Jason.
