New lake best to boilie in storm

Wayne Smith’s decision to brave gale force winds was rewarded with the capture of a new lake record.

The York-based Sticky Promo team member was targeting a North Yorkshire syndicate water when he landed the old looking 33lb 6oz mirror known as the Hoover.

Despite the appalling weather, which at times threatened to blow his bivvy into the lake, the 40-year-old stalwart found success with a Winter Berry boilie he was in the process of testing, fished over 2kg of free offerings.
