Poppy's Lake - A hectic 5 days on Poppy's Lake

 For 5 days this week we had father and son, Raymond and Jorn Gorissen fishing Poppy's lake. For 12 year old Jorn it was a birthday treat and he had a wonderful time catching a great many of the hard fighting carp that Poppy's is renowned for. Father Raymond also had his share of the fish including a mirror that took him several hours to land. At a tad over 31lb it refused to give up and I sat watching the fight for a good half hour and quite frankly there was little that Raymond could do other than hang on !! The total catch was well over 50 fish (I forgot to ask them before they left) with a great many of between 20 and 30lb. With the fish growing fast I am confident that we will start seeing more and more 30lb+ carp banked during the year.

Some pictures from this week.
