New member Leroy Swan has broken the Main Lake record with a 56-14 mirror on only his second trip. In fact it was his first from Wingham and so he becomes the third member of the Wingham Super Virgins Club, those whose first Wingham carp is 50+.
This was the first time this elusive mirror has been caught since coming out 5 years ago at 45-08.
It was caught in the recent cold snap and the number of leeches on it suggests it had just woken up. I wonder how much heavier it will be in November/December?
Amazingly Leroy had the whole 40 acres to himself. Even the Carp Lake has seen little pressure this season with a maximum of 3 on 15 acres. Indeed, on one recent weekend there was no one fishing the Carp Lake at all!
