There is a certain buzz and anticipation of going on a trip that has been booked months and months in advance. Will it happen, will they feed, how shall I approach it. It all runs through your head as the weeks creep closer. That was certainly a case for Martin Preddy. He had a week booked on French big fish venue ‘Badgers Holt’. The week fished hard but non the less Martin had a personal best common in the form of this mega long 54 leviathan known as the ‘Monday Common’. Martin applied The Formula with added Arctic Crab to tempt the fish to pick up his hookbait.
