Local angler realizes a dream and lands that elusive ‘Big Mirror’ at 45lb 8oz on overnight fishing trip!
Tony Owen from Slough, Berkshire was finally rewarded after chipping away all season fishing just overnighters in between work in the hope of realising his dream.
That dream came true when he landed a 45lb 8oz Personal Best mirror from the historic RK Leisure’s Horton Church Lake.
The local Roofer, who incidentally had worked on the Horton Lodge roof and could be found in his lunch breaks looking out across one of fishing’s most historically stunning views, realised his longtime ambition with this massive mirror.
Tony said that this was a “Fish Of A Lifetime” and the reason why he had joined RK Leisure’s venue – the Horton Complex, he went on to say that he had already paid his deposit to try and catch a bigger one next year.
Amazingly, this isn’t the biggest fish in RK Leisure’s “Church Lake”, with several other fish coming in at over 45lb+ with a lake record 48lb 15oz capture by 64 year old pensioner Steve Bliss that we reported on last month, It really is an ever growing list of “Big” fish right the way across RK Leisure’s portfolio of waters.
