Manchester angler Nathan Jackson made the trip south to Oxfordshire’s Linch Hill and was rewarded with this 34lb 10oz mirror.
The fish came from Christchurch during a three-night stay. The 26-year-old said: “I saw a few fish showing away from my spot so I chucked a lead at them and got about 40 baits out there with a stick and 45 minutes later it was away!”
Nathan fished at 50 yards and baited with Sticky boilies. His rig featured hand-sharpened hooks from Rig-It Tackle and a Korda N-Trap hooklength.
