A session to remember!

Lymm AC member, Bruce Ruscoe (aka Brucespechunter on the Lymm forum) recently had a session at Lymm’s ‘jewel in the crown’, Lymmvale where he was targeting the impressive tench residing in there. Arriving at 4 a.m., Bruce was delighted to find the popular ‘Sandbar’ swim available and immediately went in there.

There began, in Bruce’s words, “a session of a lifetime”, as he went on to take 28 tench in the following 24 hours or so and even included a 10lb mirror carp. The best of the tench weighed 6lb 10oz, 6lb 12oz, 7lb, 7lb 1oz, 8lb 12oz ( a new pb) and 8lb 14oz (another new pb!)

First, one new pb at 8lb 12oz……..

First, one new pb at 8lb 12oz……..

…then another at 8lb 14oz !

…then another at 8lb 14oz !

Bruce told us, “the session still hasn’t really sunk in and it really was one of a lifetime. I’m absolutely exhausted though having had about 5 hours sleep in two days and having a run almost every hour last night!”

Congratulations, Bruce, top angling indeed and lovely pictures to back it up. We hope you managed to get a decent nights sleep to recover!
