The French Connection
Mirrors of 30lb+, 32lb+ and then a pukka common of 42.10lb made his week!
Stew worked really hard for his fish and it was a real pleasure watching that 42 skip over the net cord
Well dangled mate!
I opted to go into snags and straight from the off it was very clear to me that the fish simply were not in front of me, the water was crystal clear, not what I was hoping, I sat it out for the day and evening in hope something was about, I did manage 2 fish topped by a 38lb+ mirror, during the day and evening so many fish were crashing out in front of a couple of empty swims right round the other side of the lake that they just couldn't be ignored, I grabbed some essentials and headed round! By first light, I'd managed to nick 7 fish out! I did give it the rest of the day in the swim but felt the fish weren't really there as they were but holding up more in front of two swims that we're already occupied, a move back to my swim then was in order.
I managed another fish Monday, Monday evening I found a new spot and gave em about 5kilo of #MILK #ONE + #STENCH to see if I could make something happen, a slow take during the night with not too much of a battle until the deep margins, a big common popped its head up and into the net, I got Jonny round to help with the weighing as I knew it was a decent fish, the scales held at 50.12lb...a new PB buzzing!
Nothing else much happened that day.... when I woke the following morning it was clear the fish had moved and we're now in front of me more than they had been all week, over Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday the fish did get on the munch and I managed around another 35 carp, Friday was a bit slower, I think they were on the move again!
I finished the week on 49, as you can see a good average overall.... 26.04 common

Promo Man Chris Clare endured some pretty rough weather over in France including sleet, rain, sharp frosts and plenty of North East winds!
Taking 9 fish for the week topped by a stunning 40lb+ common made the trip worth while!
Top dangling mate on a tough week!
Jonny Hazel had a great first ever trip over to Dreamlakes, despite the cold, dank, miserable weather, he kept at it and his rewards did come in ..........
He managed fish of 42.08 mirror 41lb common, 39.14 common, 39.08 common
37.08 common as well as a few 20s thrown in for good measure too!
Well dangled mate!
Matt Wood joined an elite group of anglers while out at Dreamlakes with us when he slipped his net under the immaculate 50.03lb common!
He did also manage another 20+mirror too
That move onto showing fish Matt well and truly paid off Matt!
Well done bud, welcome to the 50s club ??
Weeman Martin joined us over at Dreamlakes and showed that patience is a virtue, picking one of the shallowest swims on the lake which would have been a great move had the weather of been what we hoped for.......not in the cold conditions we had, but he kept at it and finally got his reward in the shape of this pukka 42.04lb common!
Well dangled Weeman
They managed two fish up to 37lb+ and worked bloody hard for those in very tough conditions at the time
Well done guys
On May 12th, 2017 some of the team and friends went back to DreamLakes 1. Fish fell to #Stench #MilkOne #Squilberry and The #SpicedNut on test.
Below are the captures over the week, even some spawning never slowed some of the guys up. And starting it all off is Venus @72lbs
