Trio of slabs weigh over 35lb

Ben Ward continued his assault on the bream stocks at a tough Hertfordshire stillwater with the capture of a trio of big fish weighing more than 35lb in total.

Targeting the venue for a four-day session, the all-rounder from Leighton Buzzard took slabs weighing 15lb 4oz, 11lb 14oz and 9lb 15oz on critically-balanced corn hookbaits on lead clip set-ups over the top.

“It was a really enjoyable trip and I even got the chance to do a bit of coaching with a bloke who wanted to learn more about bream fishing,” said Ben.”
