Hot silverfish action at Gold Valley

The silverfish shoals in Gold Valley Lakes appear to be oblivious to the cold snap with a number of big roach and skimmer bags being taken in the past few days.

A simple pole and maggot attack helped rod Dave Johnson tempt 30lb 10oz of redfins during the midweek open at the Hampshire complex, with second place Will Raison netting 20lb 15oz.

Just days later sport got even better with Daiwa Dorking’s Mark Goddard landing the spoils thanks to a 35lb haul of roach, perch and bream.
