UK Marketing Manager Andy Charlton said: ‘It always amazes me how Dave takes captures like this in his stride! What would be the catch of a lifetime for most of us is simply not uncommon for Dave. He’s inspirational to other anglers and it’s fantastic to have him on board with his knowledge and experience.’
Dave was fishing swim 21 on Rainbow at long range using 3.5 lb Greys Torsion rods and a new blow back rig that he is still testing.
Commenting on the captures Dave said: ‘It’s a little too early to comment on the blow back rig, but I’m optimistic. I was also testing a new bait created for cold water conditions. It could be a one-hit wonder so I’m looking forwards to giving it another crack.’
Dave has more recently been concentrating on the UK. Fishing Bundies he took 25 fish in three weeks, with several over 30 lb including one of 40 lb 5 oz.
