Roving single hookbaits keep the bites coming for Wiltshire pair
Gavin and Fran Hughes enjoyed an incredible 24-hour session as they banked five twenties, six doubles and a 38lb 4oz mirror.
The couple from Chippenham in Wiltshire fished nearby Hayward Pool, and it was 35-year-old Gavin who banked the biggest fish, known as the Little Lin. Fran’s biggest went 23lb 8oz.
“This was a red-letter day for sure,” said security guard Gavin. “On the second day we had to smash the margin ice up so we could see the day out, but what a day it was!
“We shared three rods, casting single Sticky Manilla pop-ups to feeding fish and had four takes in under 15 minutes, all over 20lb.”
