Sam Mixer (age 14) and his brother have been coming down to Barford throughout the summer hols and on the last weekend before school starts again Sam manages to get a 20! 20lb 10oz. 

His first cast on the Pleasure Lake this morning and only 5 minutes of fishing before he beat his P.B mirror by over 6lb.

Sam turned up at the lake to see fish fizzing about 10 yards out in peg… . He decide to use a bright strawberry boilie, hair rigged to a size 12 hook on 10lb line and flick it bang on where the carp were feeding. 5 minutes later…
