Winter beauty for in-form Hadley

In-form Hadley Ever hasn’t let plummeting temperatures put him off catching some winter stunners.

Having caught a 41lb 2oz mirror at the beginning of December, the CC Moore-backed angler headed to the New Forest Water Park and picked out this gem.

The picture-perfect winter mirror weighed in at 32lb 8oz.

Said Hadley: “Even though the weather conditions were far from favourable, I just had to get out on the bank.

“I targeted the Water Park down in the New Forest. After picking a spot to fish to I spodded out a mixture of maggots and CC Moore Live System crumb.

“I was then rewarded with this 32lb 8oz jet-black mirror. My hookbait consisted a Live System wafter with maggots on top.”
