Rackheath Springs.

The stunning "old Lin" made a welcome return to the bank for Matt this morning looking in great condition and weighing in at a fantastic 26lb 10oz. The VS stock really have made a difference proving a little competitive feeding is always good, Oct 19.


This VS Fisheries mirror was stocked 18 months ago at 5lb amazing growth and stunning looking fish. Well done to Steve who is proving that a quality bait in the right place on short over nighters is all it takes.
