Broad Acres Fishery at Hanbury has begun its Summer Pairs League with a bang – the first event saw the venue record of 186lb smashed out of sight with a 257lb bag and out of 15 anglers fishing the main pool, 13 of them broke the ton.

The record didn’t last long though, because on Sunday the record went again, Dean Sheldon set a new best mark with 289lb, with the top four putting over 1000lb on the scales, and all the fish falling to maggot!

The fishery is now taking bookings for 2014 and 2015 club matches. Interested clubs should telephone 07599 695316 or e-mail
