Moving swims in the pouring rain paid off enabled Matt Eaton to bank this 42lb mirror.
The Greys and Chub Academy member didn’t let the weather stop him moving on to feeding fish before extracting the specimen from a whole in the weed.
He said: “I moved swims in the pouring rain after finding a couple of feeding fish. I baited with a couple of handfuls of Mainline Cell and managed to take the big mirror from a small hole in the weed.”
Matt used a chod rig incorporating G-Force components, a length of leadcore and a 1.1oz lead. The fish was tamed on a 3.5lb-test-curve Greys Aircurve rod.
