THE new season on one of the nation’s most famous lakes saw Martin Fardford in tears of joy as his new bait rocket blasted out a run of amazing biggies!

West Bridgford, Nottingham-based Martin managed to break three personal bests in a five-day stint shortly after fishing re-opened on CEMEX Angling’s Horton Church Lake, Berkshire.

His haul from the attractive 14-acre pit – within noisy earshot of Heathrow Airport’s flightpath – included a monster grass carp of 43 lb 8 oz and mirror carp scaling 39 lb 12 oz and 40 lb 12 oz using the new spomb bait rockets.
