A fishing trip to celebrate having a plaster cast removed and his 30th birthday yielded two fine twenties for Matt Wilding.
Six weeks after breaking his wrist, and a few days after his birthday, Matt was back on his Shropshire syndicate to bank a 29lb 11oz common and a 26lb 8oz mirror.
He said: “I have been a member of this syndicate since April and was yet to wet a line, so I decided that I would finally fish it.
“I was made up with the result and new blood on my syndicate. It was also a great belated birthday present.”
Matt spread 3kg of Baitcraft Savay Salmon boilies over a film silt patch at 60yds and fished chod rigs over the top.
