Young Dan started his week on Peter's Pool where ha landed four commons to 26lbs 8ozs and a 19lb mirror before switching to Eagle. Here he quickly landed three twenty plus mirrors, then two 30's including a new personal best at 33lb 15ozs. Then he had a run of big cats with a new pb of 43lb 15oz, then another pb at 50lb 5oz and a new pb of 51lb 5oz! He had the brace of 50's in one day.
