55lb 8oz mirror from The Avenue

Targeting a quiet bay of RH Fisheries’ The Avenue in Shropshire paid off for Brian Dunlop when he landed this 55lb 8oz mirror.

It was the second time this year which the Birmingham-based rod had landed the sought after fish after catching it at a spawned out weight of 45lb 8oz a couple of months ago.

Fishing to the edge of a small island at 25 yards range he used a Pyramid Baits PP60 boilie hookbait over a light scattering of freebies and received the all-important bite on the final afternoon of his 48 hour session.
