Stuart Kilden upped his personal best with this 28-pounder from an Essex syndicate lake.
The 35-year-old engineer fished the margins during a day session at Valley Lake on the Fryerning Fisheries site. He said: “It’s a new personal best and I’m very happy!”
Stuart, from Romford, offered a Mainline Banoffee pop-up topped with maize in a solid PVA bag filled with crushed boilies. His rig featured a size 4 Korda Kurv Shank hook tied to a 18lb Korda Super Natural hooklink and attached to a 2oz inline led.
