Big commons have followed Dan Leney this autumn, as proved by this latest chunk.
This 40lb 6oz common comes hot on the heels of the 46-pounder we reported on last week. The latest fish also came from RK Leisure’s Horton Island Lake in Berkshire.
Dan, who also caught three twenties during his two-night session, said: “I was beyond chuffed when the rod melted off at 6.30am on the final morning. An epic boat battle ensued before I netted what can only be described as another dream – like buses, another forty lay in my net.”
The 39-year-old teacher baited with maggots, corn and CC Moore Equinox boilies and Snails and Insect Meal.
