I only began fishing last April after begging dad for years, started on benfleet hall to get the hang of rig tying and fish care etc, once confident there we then had fortnightly socials on crow green which my first fish out of there was a 53lb cat! I had mostly catfish in the summer there so we began a little campaign on the chelmer and black water canal just me and dad. First over nighter and I had a 17lb 7 mirror which was my pb at the time, that week followed with my current UK pb mirror of 25lb 9, we had many nights there and by the end of the summer I was confident finding my own spots, casting my rods myself and never blanked a night! In November we arranged my first France trip which was to Flores, I came home happy with a 24 and 32lb mirror! This year has been quite due to work although I had an epic trip to domaine de boux in France in March where I had 5 20’s, 4 30’s 6 40’s and my current foreign pb a 52lb common which was massive!! Hoping to spend some time pike fishing on the canal this winter before beginning it all again early spring!
