WITHY Pool and Savay Lake have both produced their first ever 50lb plus carp in the last few days.

Richard Grundy, who comes from Potters Bar, took a 50lb 8oz mirror from Middlesex’s famous Savay Lake by fishing a cream flavoured boilie over a six foot deep gravel bar he’d baited with 30 free offerings. He also added a 36lb 4oz fish from the Colne Valley water.

Meanwhile Wayne Stevenson was all smiles after bagging a big mirror known as The Forty at a new best and venue record weigh of 51lb 12oz from Withy Pool.

The 26-year-old Sandy, Beds angler fished an Activ-Maple-8 boilie. Presumbly it will now be called The Fifty…

Word is the big common at Bluebell Fishery near Tansor in Northants has been bagged again too.
