Gallery Updates

After a week on my hols the gallery has now been updated and features some more cracking fish from Howells, Rook Hall (where Jack Walker had a bumper haul bagging 12 fish in a day including this stunner – not his largest on the day but certainly my pick of the bunch) , and a re-appearance of  the Totham Pit monster Eel – well done to James for holding it still for the camera!

Andrew banks Willow

Andrew Fleurquin landed Totham Pit’s largest resident on 15th Aug 2009 and here are the events surrounding Willow’s latest visit to the bank in Andrew’s own words:
Arriving at Totham Pit early Saturday morning I was pleased to see only 2 other cars, fishing must be tough I thought to myself.  I loaded up the trolley and set off in search of some carp. I chose to fish the church bank, a magnet for bream I know, but I had my dad with me so for the social side it’s a great spot.
After setting up and spreading half a kilo of boilies about I was soon in the land of nod when my right hand rod sounded, I jumped up and grabbed it just in time, it had pulled the reel right up to the alarm ‘God! That was lucky I said!’
From the off I could feel I was playing one of the biggies, 5 minutes later I had her under the rod tip, I looked at my dad and said ‘Thats Willow, I’ve got Willow’, heart now thumping praying the hook doesn’t slip, there was no need to worry in the net she goes first time phewww.
Once on the mat I could see she wasn’t at her best weight, not that it mattered, I’ve been after her for ages, with Offgood gone (R.I.P)  she is now the top dog, although she only went 28.5  she looked mint! With the photos done it was time to return her to her home, the kettle went on, text messages went out and I sat down to take it all in. Pukka!
