Ryan Bags the First Tagged Fish

The first tagged fish in Haywards Farm Lake finally met its match over the weekend with Ryan Mesarcik netting the superb 11lb rainbow pictured on an orange hot head damsel. Ryan snipped off the tag, returned the fish alive to the water and claimed the prize pot which, at the time of capture, stood at £64. A little pot of gold at the end of the rainbow some might say…

The next batch of tagged fish will be introduced shortly, watch this space for further details.
