Moving swims the key to success

Moving on to showing fish paid off for Tim Jackson when he banked this 48lb 11oz mirror known as Three Scales from Rockford Lake.

Fishing to a long range spot at 130yds range the 38-year-old Wiltshire-based rod baited the area with 2kg of Nash Mach 1 boilies and cast a matching pop-up over the top on a chod rig to ensure he achieved a good presentation over the weed.

His rod ripped off just after first light and after a powerful scrap during which the fish weeded him up on a couple of occasions he netted his prize.
