HONEY­MOON KICKS OFF WITH FORTY

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEKS -

A FEW hours be­fore he flew to Aus­tralia for his honey­moon, Matthew For­shaw grabbed his rods and headed to Mercers Park for a quick ses­sion... and ended up catch­ing this 44lb 2oz mir­ror! The 28-year-old plumber tar­geted a 15ft-deep clear sandy spot two rodlengths out at the Sur­rey venue, which he baited with Sticky Manilla 4mm and 6mm pel­lets. He then flicked out two rods car­ry­ing pink 10mm Sig­na­ture pop-ups on Ron­nie rigs and lead safety clips. Just an hour later he was into the pow­er­ful fish. He said: “I saw a de­cent fish show not too far away from my rods, and then shortly af­ter­wards my left-hand rod was away. Af­ter a long and hard fight I net­ted a fish called The Leany at 44lb 2oz.”
