Matt Fernandez and his stunning brace. A 4lb crucian and a 3lb 15oz fish

by Angling Times |

“Arriving at the lake I saw it was very busy, but there were a few swims free on a bank that I fancied. After a run of crucians to 3lb 9oz, the big fish turned up!

“I had a few anglers in the swim for a bit of socially-distanced banter when one of the rods ripped off, resulting in a 3lb 15oz fish. Shortly after, the other rod buckled and a stunning crucian of 4lb exactly was soon in the net. Then, while doing the brace shot, I had another take, this time from a fish of 3lb 15oz!

“The lads were as amazed as I was, and I was so overwhelmed by it that I packed up early and went home to the wife and kids.”
