Like London buses!

Mark Horspool struck gold on his latest visit to BHAA’s Gingerbread Lake where plenty of sightings of carp have been made but few fish caught. Mark was elated to have caught a 30lb plus common carp but only a few hours later he had a second run that resulted in him catching another huge common. His fish weighed 30lb 14oz and 32lb with one of the fish a long lean fighting machine whilst the other was a superbly proportioned specimen. Another member to catch a big common was Mark Arnold who landed a 33lb common, a new personal best for the angler.

Thomas Finney has continued fishing for pike and his latest capture is an 18lb specimen which fell to a ledgered mackerel.

Young Kavanagh Palmer-Fletcher has continued with his terrific start at Swan Lake by landing a second double-figured bream, a 10lb 8oz specimen. The only disappointment for Kavanagh was that he was trying to catch one of the lake’s elusive carp!
