Good things came in threes for Michael Rigby at Dinton Pastures.

On the third and final night of his third guest session at the Berkshire venue, the 37-year-old snared a trio of crackers from Black Swan.

Top of the list was this stunning 35lb 8oz zip linear, followed by a 27lb 8oz common and a 22lb 2oz mirror.

 What a beaut! 35lb 8oz of Berkshire linear

Michael had made the long journey south with fellow Cheshire angler and Dinton regular Myles Gibson.

“It was my third guest trip with Myles to Black Swan,” said Michael, “I had been hoping and trying my hardest to catch just one from there, so to catch three including a big, insanely gorgeous zip linear blew me away!

“Thanks to Myles for the trips and Simon [Bartlam] for letting me fish. Black Swan is an amazing lake with a wicked atmosphere and a great bunch of lads fishing there.”

All three fish were caught on pop-ups over 6kg of 16mm and 20mm Sticky Krill boilies.
