Silt patch produces 39lb 12oz mirror

This 39lb 12oz mirror known as Spike was the highlight of a six fish catch for Scott Lloyd during a session on Richworth Linear Fisheries Manor Farm Lake.

The 22-year-old from Crewe, Cheshire, targeted a silt patch at 70yds range which he baited with 20 spods of CC Moore Odyssey XXX boilies and Tigers in Talin.

His successful rigs were tied with Nash Missing Link hooklinks and size 6 Korda Wide Gape hooks.
