Exclusive Dreams Really Do Come True
know. I really wouldn’t be where I am
today with my angling if it wasn’t for
him, so I can’t thank him enough!
Sharing that moment also with Nick
and a fella called Craig from another
swim made it even more special. Big
fish Thursday really did live up to its
name! It’s safe to say there were a
few beers flowing through the day
Thursday and up at the lodge for dinner that evening.
The rest of Thursday and through
the night was all quiet for me, but
what did I care? Never mind being on
cloud nine – I didn’t have a clue what
cloud I was on! I had just absolutely
smashed my personal best and had a
new lake record! It wasn’t until Friday
afternoon that I had my next fish…
well… in fact I had two in half an hour
– a lovely scaly 42lb 8oz mirror
backed up with another mirror of 52lb
8oz, my first French 50lb-plus carp.
The final night passed uneventfully
for both dad and me with the lad
down to our left having his first of the
session, so it became pretty clear the
fish had done the off! Funny how that
small change of hook bait had such a
massive impact on the outcome of my
session! And what a session it turned
out to be – a session I will never forget
in all my years to come and one that
will be very hard to top now. Packed
up by 8am Saturday morning, a quick

shower, coffee and some toast, we
said our farewells and were on the
road by 9am.
Dreams really do come true! At
least at Lac De Premiere they do! Roll
on 2021… I will be back, as there is a
rather large common I want in my
album next! n
