Essex venue produces its fourth 50

An Essex venue has produced its fourth different 50-pounder.

The big mirror, known as the Netted Fish, came as part of a 92lb 2oz brace for Peter Weedon at Fryerning Fisheries’ Main Lake.

At 50lb 2oz, the Netted Fish joins the Gurm, the Mommon and the Boss on the venue’s current roster of 50s.

Peter also caught a fish known as the Gambler at 42lb just a few hours beforehand.

“Peter has just caught the venue’s fourth 50-pounder after landing the Netted Fish at a magical 50lb 2oz, its first time over 50lb,” said Fryerning boss Charlie Knowles.

“I’m extremely chuffed,” said Peter, “What a session!”

The 67-year-old taxi driver spread 6kg of Nashbait Monster Squid over a hard spot just 40yds from the bank at the syndicate water.

He presented a matching hookbait on a size 6 Korda Krank hook tied with a knotless knot to a Korda hooklength attached to a 3oz pear lead.
