With his girlfriend being heavily pregnant, Luke Belton hasn’t had much headspace for fishing lately, but he managed to motivate himself for a night on his Essex syndicate water and the result was the recapture of an old friend.

In March, Luke beat his personal best with the capture of the Peach at 45lb, and it was the same fish that came to pay him a visit on this session, weighing in at 43lb having clearly spawned but looking in magnificent fettle.

It was also the second time the fish had fallen to S7, this time taking a wafter hookbait fished over 15 Spombs of whole and halved S7 freebies.

Luke added: “This fish was very welcome seeing as though I’m finding it hard to get out right now with my head being so focused on my baby boy, who is due in the next few weeks. This one’s for him; see you soon, little man!”
