Three bests in one session

Dean Pawsey had to wait 25 years to break his personal best – and then did it three times in one session at Fenland Fisheries Willow Lake.

Mirrors of 34lb 13oz, 35lb 14oz and 42lb 8oz graced his net following a change of swims, all of which beat his previous best of 21lb.

Casting to a gravel bar at 25 yards range, the 53-year-old, Sawtry-based builder offered Mainline Cell hookbaits over a dozen freebies on Fox Arma Point hooks and 15lb Coretex hooklinks.
