45lb mirror tops 15-fish Wraysbury haul

This mirror weighing 45lb 2oz was the pick of 15 fish landed by Will Hayston over three nights on Wraysbury North Lake.

After making the 150-mile trip from his Devon home to the famous Berkshire venue, the 25-year-old targeted a small clear spot in heavy weed at 120yds.

After baiting the area quite heavily with 16mm Sticky Krill boilies soaked in matching liquid, plus mixed Bloodworm and Krill pellets, he offered a Krill wafter over the top presented on a blowback rig incorporating a size 4 Korda Kurv hook.

Will banked the biggest of his haul on the first night of his stay – which is a fish known as Mike’s Pet – before adding a 39lb 8oz mirror (bizarrely, a fish known as ‘Not Mike’s Pet’) on the final morning of his stay.

He also managed a 35lb heavily scaled mirror as part of his impressive haul.

Will got through 15kg of boilies and 5kg of pellets during the session.
