Angler of the week had to go to Craig Brown who had a 24hr on peg 6 and had 2 fish, with anglers not turning up for cabin 7 Craig moved on for his second 24hr.

An hour after setting up he had a double take, skilfully he managed to land both fish. He caught a common ‘The Chunk’ at 32lb 14oz and a mirror ‘Big Jaffa’ at 34lb. He finished his entire session with 6 fish in total. Well done on the rare double take of 30+ fish.

Congratulations to everyone on your PB’s.

Well done to all anglers and until next time, tight lines and all.
