Buckland rudd of 3lb falls to a plastic boilie

Mike Lyddon was the latest angler to sample the fantastic sport on offer at big rudd mecca, Buckland Lake Reserve Fishery, this 3lb 8dr specimen the highlight of his session.

The Gardner Tackle sales rep landed the fish just two rod lengths out on an Enterprise 10mm Immortal plastic boilie over a bed of sweetcorn.

He told Angling Times: “I had to use an artificial hookbait to get round the hordes of small fish which kept stripping off conventional baits.”

His winning presentation comprised 6lb Gardner Hydro Flo mainline and a size 14 Target hook.
