Margin spot produces 35lb 14oz mirror

This 35lb 14oz mirror was caught by Bill Phillips during a 48 hour session on Clawford Vineyard’s Tanners Lake in Devon.

The 62-year-old retired production manager fished a Mainline Baits Cell dumbbell over a bed of hemp just two feet out on the marginal slope.

He received the take just before first light and after a decent scrap he beat his prize with a 12ins Kryston Super-Silk hooklink attached to a size 8 Korda Kurv Shank hook.
