Mark Pitchers banks super-elusive mirror

YouTube star Mark Pitchers caught a fish so elusive the lake owner hadn’t seen it on the bank before.

The Fox consultant and popular Challenge host spent a taxing week tackling Spitfire Pool at Rich Wilby’s Airfield Lakes and was rewarded with this 26lb 9oz mirror.

The fish is one of only about 15 in the venue and only had two previous reported captures before Mark banked it.

He said: “It's one of the rarest visitors to the bank, with this being just its third ever recorded capture.

“In fact, this is the first time fishery owner Rich has even seen the carp on the bank!

“It fell to a single CC Moore Elite Dairy Supreme pop-up fished beneath an overhanging bush in the margins.”

The Norfolk venue has recently produced its two biggest commons. One at 47lb 12oz and the other at 50lb 7oz.
