30lb mirror after weeks of freezing temperatures

Orchid Lake is back producing thirties after weeks of frozen temperatures.

The Oxfordshire day-ticket water, which has shown its coldwater credentials once more this winter, produced this 30lb 4oz mirror from the All Alone swim at the end of last week.

Mike Richards was the captor and he tempted the fish from the right-hand margin of the tucked-away bay swim.

Orchid owner Marsh Pratley said: “The fish came from the right-hand side where it narrows off. It’s Flora, a fish that made 30lb for the first time a few weeks ago at 30lbs 2oz.”
