Julian Chidgey banks The Fat Linear at 34lb

This 34lb 2oz mirror, known as The Fat Linear, fell to the rods of angling consultant Julian Chidgey.

The Fox-backed rod travelled to Digger Lakes in Devon and baited heavily on Persey’s Lake.

The 31-year-old introduced 3.5kg of Richworth KG1 boilies to the swim and fished a matching snowman rig over the top in open water just 10 metres out. He also banked a 15lb mirror.
