Savay 45lb 2oz mirror caught on balanced bait

This stunning 45lb 2oz mirror from the historic Savay syndicate water in the Colne Valley was caught by venue regular ‘Cabbie’.

He has been helping Baitcraft boss Mark Mckenna put a new bait through its paces for the majority of the year, and the awesome specimen known as Lionels is the latest of the Savay A-listers to fall to it.

Cabbie presented his critically-balanced prototype hookbait over a bed of hemp, corn, boilies, pellets and liquid and powdered additives which he spodded to a spot at over 100yds range.
