Winter 40 on snowman hookbaits

Nick Harrison braved the cold conditions and his efforts were rewarded with this stunning 41lb 10oz mirror from the 25-acre Unity Lake syndicate on the Richworth Linear Fisheries complex in Oxfordshire.

The impressive specimen known as Moonscale was taken on a snowman presentation consisting of Mainline Cell boilies which was fished over a scattering of freebies at 80yds range.

Nick’s winning setup included a 20lb Korda N-Trap hooklink and a size 6 Gardner Incizor hook.
