Swan on song!

Alan Wilkie decided to try to catch a big carp from BHAA’s Swan Lake whilst the mild weather lasted and it did not take him long. He started fishing at 1pm using 10mm boilies fished snowman style amongst a small scattering of freebies no more than 15 yards from the bank side. At 6.25pm his buzzer sounded a run which resulted in a hard 10 minute fight before he could net the fish which turned out to be a 28lb 11oz common carp, a new personal best common. He returned two days later with equal success landing mirror carp weighing 23lb 14oz and 14lb 15oz employing the same tactics.

The management board of BHAA Ltd would like to wish all of its members a very Happy Xmas and tight lines in the New Year. The board remains very active throughout the year arranging restocking of waters and essential maintenance work at our fisheries. It is currently looking into the possibility of erecting otter fencing around one or more of our big fish venues as funds permit.
