Swim change leads to 40lb 1oz mirror

Following two changes of swims, Ted Bryan was rewarded with a three fish catch topped by this 40lb 1oz mirror.

The Sydenham-based specimen hunter had to brave torrential rain and gale force winds during the trip, but on the final night he received a fast take which resulted in the chunky specimen.

He hadn’t been back in bed long when he was woken by a second bite which ended up with a 25lb common sat in the net.

He then rounded off the session in style in the early hours of the morning with a second mirror weighing in at 30lb 8oz.

All of Ted’s fish were taken on 15mm Nash Amber Strawberry pop-up hookbaits fished on 12lb Bullet hooklinks and size 8 Nash Fang X hooklinks over a scattering of 10mm and 15mm free offerings.
