Rob Archer managed to land another 20lb Mirror from Leacroft on a recent over night session, the mirror weighed in at 20lb 1oz, which is a fair weight considering that they spawned heavily the previous week. Interestingly this is the second time Rob has landed this fish and both times it fell to the same rig and bait combination even though he regularly uses different baits, the fish was taken on a slightly modified stiff hinged rig coupled with a buoyant yellow Cell hook bait fished near a marginal weed bed. I’m told the weed is now starting to come through and this created a few problems when trying to land the fish…it’s definitely worth ditching the back leads and opting for drop off lead systems. Unfortunately Rob encountered a few technical issues with his new camera…which explains why he looks so happy having just landed a 20!!!!!
