Nash Church Lake's 50lb mirror

One of Kevin Nash’s gems has been banked at over 50lb.

This 50lb 8oz mirror gave William Dawson a new personal best as he enjoyed a five-day session at the Essex tackle mogul’s Church Lake.

William, from Kent, also caught another mirror of 28lb and lost one shortly before landing the 50.

The 34-year-old said: “I lost a fish at the net at 3.30am, and then got the take from this fish.

“My first fish landed on the lake and it’s a personal-best mirror, and I believe it’s one of if not the biggest mirror in the lake.”

William fished 20yds out to the edge of a weedbed and baited with Sticky Krill boilies.

He fished a 16mm Krill Tuff One topped with a Signature Squid pop-up on a ‘Noodle’ rig made with a barbless size 4 Korda Wide Gape hook and 30lb Korda N-Trap Semi Stiff.
