Valley Lake record smashed again!

Back to Previous
The Valley Lake has been in fantastic form recently with plenty of carp coming out and P.B.s being smashed.

Nick Marsh recently took full advantage of the terrific sport to be had on The Valley after a luckless session on The Main Lake due to spawning fish stocks.

Having seen many big dark shapes cruising amongst its surface layers, Nick decided a bit of stalking using floating baits was to be his approach and in no time at all he was paid off handsomely.

In no time at all Nick sensationly managed to land an absolute belter of common, which when hoisted upon the scales went a massive 41lb 3oz, smashing The Valley Lake record in style.

The action didnt stop there however as Nick went on to catch a stunning 20lb mirror and all in a couple of hours on a simple chopped down cell pop-up.

Nick also had a twenty in a fantastic session

Happy Days at Fryerning!
