New Stock.

Posted by Richard on November 24, 2016 at 5:45 AM Comments comments (0)

 

White Springs has again added some new residents to the Specimen Lake. They have introduced nine new thirties from the same supplier who has given us such beauties as the Turk, Bruno, Warrior, Big Jaffa, Hob Nob and Cheryl to name but a few.

 

The introduction of three Commons and six Mirrors have, yet again, added to the already well stocked Specimen Lake.

 

All fish were in pristine condition and have never been fished for before and if like the other stock they will be hard fighting.

 

Here at White Springs their policy to be the best fishery in the Uk has certainly taken an up turn with these new residents.

 

Here we have all weights and pictures of the new specimens that will make the lake one of the most fished here in Wales.

 

Many thanks to the staff at White Springs for their continued dedication to make our specimen angling as good as anything throughout the country.

 

31lb Common.

 

 

32lb Mirror.

 

 

37lb Mirror.

 

 

32 Mirror.

 

 

30lb Common.

 

 

35lb Mirror.

 

 

37lb Mirror.

 

32lb 8 0z Common.

 

36lb Mirror.

 

All fish have yet to be named, so if you fancy your chances. Contact the fishery to book your place on the Specimen lake immediately.
