Target 38lb mirror after four year wait

A quick overnight session on a local water resulted in Jak Bryant landing his target fish – Seven Scales at an impressive weight of 38lb.

The Hampshire-based rod woke at 4am after an uneventful night and decided to re-bait his rods and put out around 20-30 CC Moore Live System boilies over each rod.

He said: “45 minutes I had a powerful run and as soon as I picked up the rod I had a feeling I was attached to my target fish. The fight seemed to last for ages but I finally slipped my net under the fish I’ve been chasing for around four years.”

Jak used a tweaked version of the KD rig consisting of a size 8 Gardner Covert Longshank Mugga hook and a Sink Skin hooklink.
