One session, two personal bests

KEVIN Hewitt proved the pulling power of lobworms for big perch after smashing his personal best twice in the same session with fish of 3lb 5oz and 2lb 13oz.

Fishing off the dam wall at Coate Water Country Park in Swindon the Cotswold Angling manager broke his pb of 2lb 5oz for the first time when he offered a worm in conjunction with a feeder filled with chopped freebies.

But he left the best until last as he freelined a hookbait on a size 7 hook to bank his first perch over the 3lb barrier.

“I was just packing my rods away when I saw my line pull tight and I struck into-the fish-of-a-lifetime,” said Kevin.
