Incredible haul of thirties topped by 47lb mirror

The revamped Kingsmead One gave Ian Russell an incredible haul of thirties, topped by this 47lb 2oz mirror.

The Avid Carp consultant and angling tutor blitzed the Berkshire venue during a 44-hour session with a haul of 13 carp, 10 of which were over 30lb.

Kingsmead One, on the Horton complex, has recently been re-opened as part of the RK Leisure group of lakes, which now includes the historic Wraysbury and Horton Boat Pool among others.

Ian moved swims three times after a slow start and instantly started to catch once he had located the carp. All the fish, including three weighing 38lb, fell in the last 25 hours of the session and came to Sonubaits boilies and F1 sweetcorn.

RK Leisure spokesman Leon Bartropp said: “The Horton complex holds some stunning fish and big catches are regular there but nothing before on this scale for the Surrey-based angler.

“Ian fed a total 5kg of bait over the session and managed 10 fish over the magical 30lb barrier, both commons and mirrors, including five fish over 35lb, topped by a huge 47lb-plus mirror!

“It just doesn’t get any better than this and with the fish growing at an alarming rate on RK Leisure’s Horton complex we can see this being a regular occurrence in the future at the Berkshire venues.”
