39lb of pure gold!
As we only have 2 anglers here this week and Andy was happy for me to have a fish I thought I would give the new completed swim a go for a couple of hours in the afternoon.
After a quite spell (other than watching the pike spawn, pictures on my Blog) one of my rods suddenly tore off and after a really good scrap I managed to bank this beautiful 39lb 4oz common. In the sun it looked absolutely stunning!
Tight lines, John
