This new personal best 5lb 4oz golden orfe came during a short after work session at a Surrey day-ticket water for Lee Chatfield.
The Sonubaits and Gardner Tackle-backed rod also landed fish of 5lb 2oz, 4lb 13oz, 4lb 12oz and 4lb 6oz along with 10 tench.
All of his fish were taken on wag-and-mag tactics over a bed of Supercrush Green groundbait. He said: “In four sessions targeting Orfe I have landed more than 10 fish over 4lb. The next time I target the species I’m going to try and catch a six pounder.”
