56lb mirror from Holme Fen

Holme Fen produced another of its giants to Keith Mccance.

The Nottingham angler banked this 56lb mirror, plus another of 35lb, during his latest trip to the open-access Cambridgeshire venue.

Fishing Meadows Lake, where he caught six 30s, five 40s and a 50 in a single session last year, the 52-year-old received five bites in total.

Keith told Carpfeed: “I was fishing at 90yds where I had found a nice clear spot, so I put out 5kg of Vortex Baits CKO and fished a hinged stiff rig with a yellow CKO pop-up over the top.

“I had the bite at 12.30pm and it was a long fight after it got my stuck behind a gravel bar. I was on a four-night trip and had a 35lb mirror and lost three fish due to the weed.”
