'Long-forgotten pit' produces brace of beauties

A ‘long-forgotten pit’ produced a brace of beauties at close quarters for Dan Sales.

The 19lb and 22lb mirrors fell to surface baits placed with precision.

Dan said: “My first session saw me bag two lovely old mirrors off the surface at very close range –  literally lowering baits through gaps in the overgrown trees and hanging on for dear life when they sucked in the bait! My kind of fishing!

“These two fish are from a long-forgotten pit which no-one seems to fish anymore.”
Dan used Fox Illusion XS fluorocarbon mainline, a size 4 Kuro S2 hook and a big piece of bread.
