SIMON HARBOTTLE had his first session back on Erics Angling’s Willows Lake - and what a result he notched up!

The 46-year-old’s giant mirror scaled 49 lb 8 oz and he added three others in a prolific trip at Willows Lake, a day ticket venue in West Yorkshire.

It was the from Stockton-on-Tees, County Durham, angler’s first session there since his winter ticket ran out.

Simon said: “The fish were all caught on a clear spot amongst dead Canadian weed on a Key Bait Solutions 12 mm pink twisted peach pop-up over crumbed All Season Mix boilies.”
