Boilie and pellet combo fool 41lb mirror

Sam Bascombe has caught his second forty of the year from CEMEX Angling’s Roach Pit in the form of this 41lb mirror.

The 26-year-old Dorset-based builder targeted a silt patch at 50yds range and baited the spot with CC Moore Odyssey XXX boilies and 5kg of Betaine pellets.

He mounted his hookbait on a stiff-hinged rig tied with 25lb Atomic Tackle Jel-E-Wyre and 20lb ESP Stiff Rig Bristle Filament attached to a size 6 Korda Choddy hook.
