A change of swims paid dividends for Matt Eaton with a brace of 30s from a southern stillwater.
The Greys and Chub-backed rod explained: “I spent the whole day walking the lake and I found fish in several different areas but not in any numbers, so ended up in a swim that I had fished a few times recently.
“I caught a small mirror the following morning but didn't see much activity so wound in for another look around. There were a lot of fish bubbling at the opposite end of the lake so I moved up there. I fed the swim with a kilo of the ever-consistent Cell and placed two pop-ups over the top.
“During the night one of the baits was picked up and, after a fierce fight which wiped out the other rod, I landed a mirror of 39lb 12oz. Another mirror, which managed to weed me up twice, was banked a few hours later at 31lb 4oz."
