Big fish keep coming two by two!

Membership Secretary Anthony Pogmore used an attractor boilie fished snowman style cast amidst a bed of Denham Baits’ Inception boilies in the factory bay at Gingerbread Lake. He had just received a phone call from one of the club’s bailiffs when the alarm for his right-hand rode signaled a run. The phone was thrown to the floor and, after a short fight, a 20lb 8oz mirror carp was netted. The fish was soon returned so Anthony got back on the phone to explain to his colleague what had happened. He had barely started to talk when his left-hand alarm screamed out and the phone was quickly discarded for a second time. This time the fish turned out to be a 25lb mirror carp.

BHAA member Steve Pryor went for a day’s fishing on the River Ivel near his home and decided to use ledgered luncheon meat for bait. Steve was doubly pleased to land not one but two double-figured barbel. Steve’s fish weighed 15lbs and 11lbs. Another club member reported catching a 15lb plus barbel from the river too.

Alex Malcolm turned up at Swan Lake and soon after his arrival carp were jumping in his swim. Alex cast out his baits to where the fish were crashing and soon caught two big carp in quick succession. His fish weighed 19lbs and 21lbs and were both commons.
