Long haul rewarded with 35lb mirror from Linch Hill

Park ranger Paul Webber made the trek up from Devon to Oxfordshire to catch this pretty Linch Hill mirror.

The 32-year-old snared the 35lb 6oz fish from Christchurch at the popular day-ticket complex.

Paul, from Honiton, targeted a silty area about 60 yards from the bank and baited with crumbed-up Sticky Krill boilies and maggots. His hookbait was a 12mm Krill dumbbell presented on a size 8 ACE Razor Point hook and a length of 25lb Black Deception hooklink material.
