Thames Red Letter Session

Thames Red Letter Session

Advanced Angling’s Head Bailiff, Richard Cottrell, has been in touch after an amazing session from the River Thames.

Richard reported that this was his first session on the Thames this season and after setting up he quickly landed a couple of small Chub and a 6lb plus Bream.

A change to Multiworm wrapped in Multiworm Paste fished in conjunction with the incredibly effective Stonze System and phenomenal Gamma fishing line saw his rod slammed around and it was obvious that this was a good fish. After a spirited and ‘heart stopping’ fight his prize was landed in the shape of a new Thames personal best Barbel of 15lb 1oz.

Not stopping there, and after recasting, his reel ripped off and again it was ‘fight on’ with another large fish hooked that was not giving up easily! After a cracking fight Richard slipped his net under a gorgeous Mirror Carp of 20lb 2oz to end a session that he won’t be forgetting for some time!

Fantastic fishing, Richard, and congratulations from us all on the new PB. Pom.
