Having only arrived back in the UK from the US 24 hours earlier, after a weeks skiing Matthew was desperate to get back to it.
We were up as usual at just after 6am and I drove him over to Slough House, Bulphan for his first session since his return.
Thankfully, the weather had finally starting to warm up and the reports that were being posted on social media, suggested that the fish were starting to bite.
‘Marthew’ has a couple of nice fish during the morning but at about 5pm I got a call to get over there quick as he’s just netted a big one and he wasn’t sure whether this might be the day that he finally broke his ’20’.
Sadly this wasn’t that day (although it was mighty close) but he was still very please with a new pb, a lovely 19lb8oz leather.
