Chris Reilly was chuffed to get his first fish from an Embryo Angling Habitats syndicate water, especially with it being one of the lake’s real gems, a mirror known as Kinky at 30lb on the button.
“It was nice to get my hands on one of this lake’s gems after losing my first few bites in the thick weed,” said Chris.
“Known as Kinky and just tipping the scales at 30lb, it was a very good post-spawning weight for the fish.”
The 37-year-old from Watford used 15mm Bug Half Tones pop-ups on hinged stiff rigs, fishing them into a small bay and baiting little and often with chopped Bug boilies and Crayfish Maxi Mix pellets.
