Aidan Mansfield has set a new venue record at prolific Warwickshire venue, Tunnel Barn Farm.
Drawn on peg one on the New Pool, Aidan based his attack around fishing hard pellets on the pole, and plundered the venue’s F1 population.
He told Pole Fishing: “It was just a real red letter day when everything that I did worked. I caught a lot of my fish down the edge, and included some monstrous F1s, well over 3lb in my catch. I knew I had caught well, but even I was surprised when I found out just how heavy my fish weighed – they totalled 336-11-0 which was enough to set a new venue record!
I can’t give too much away though, as I actually shot a feature with Pole Fishing Magazine, which is out next month, explaining in depth and detail my hard pellet tactics.
After such a intensive workout, I certainly slept well on Saturday night, my arms were knackered!”
