Eventually we began to see some fish being banked and, while 5 forties to 48.03, common, are not to be sneezed at, none of the fifty plus fish had seen a net.
Friday afternoon rectified that with Pat sending out the whoops of success. I was called by Alan to bring the scales and camera so I knew it was a good fish and as soon as I arrived in Pat’s swim I recognized the fish. Pat estimated her at 55lbs and was convinced that it wouldn’t beat his PB of 61.13 which was Clover from last year but I was confident that it would. On the scales and the reading confirmed my thoughts. There, in all her glory, was Cut Tail at a new lake record weight of 74lbs 10oz.
well angled mate. You deserve that kipper.
