Snowman rig fools old Hunts Corner original

On his first ever session at Richworth Linear Fisheries Hunts Corner Lake, Mark Pitchers banked one of the venue's old original mirrors in the form of this 32lb 7oz specimen.

The 33-year-old Fox consultant also landed eight other carp to 22lb 1oz during his 48 hour session, using a snowman presentation consisting of a 14mm Mainline Baits Cell bottom bait and a 12mm Frank Warwick Fruit Juice pop-up.

He mounted his hookbaits on size 8 Fox Arma Point XSC hooks and 15lb Fox Reflex hooklinks.
