Campaign off to flying start for Dave Springall

Dave Springall got his campaign on an Essex syndicate off to a flying start, with a brace of twenties weighing 28lb 12oz and 25lb 12oz on his first session on the venue.

Both fish were taken by the Greys Academy member on stiff-hinged rigs tied with size 6 Atomic Tackle Grabba hooks and Stiffun hooklinks.

The common, weighing 28lb 12oz, came to a Baitcraft Halo 14mm pop-up over a 1kg of freebies and the mirror took a Baitcraft Super K pop-up over 1kg of mixed sized freebies.
