Lee Hooker’s final session on Nunnery D Lake before the venue’s traditional close season saw him land a new UK personal best as part of a two-fish catch on The Bug!

This very challenging venue doesn’t throw up its inhabitants willingly, so to get two in one session was an exceptional result.

The highlight was a real character of the lake, an age-old mirror known as Stella at 44lb 8oz, which Lee backed up with a very contrasting-looking fish, a stunning scaly mirror of 26lb 8oz.

Speaking about his tactics, Lee said: “The Bug is working well for me. Simple stiff hinge rigs with 18mm Bug pop-ups and a small scattering of 18mm Bug boilies pre-soaked in the Bug Hydro Spod Syrup snared these wily old fish.”
