This was a special fathers day present from all the family, arranged by his daughter Natalie. The wonderful Westwood lakes near Boston in Lincolnshire was the chosen venue.

It was a very warm morning with just a light northerly breeze. Alan the owner had reserved peg 39 on skylark lake for us.

Pole was the chosen method, cupping in a big pot of hemp plus a pot of dead maggots and then loose feeding maggots over the top, with double dead red maggot on the hook. Tony was soon catching a fish every put in, barbel at first and then tench, ide and carp. It was nonstop action. It did slow a little in the last hour but then the temperature was close to 30°C.

We were lucky to find a friendly angler to take the catch shot and I guess Tony had caught close to 90lbs.
