I was surprised that within 10 minutes the left hander was away. The fish must have been straight on the bait and not long after an old gnarly 21lb common was in the net. I was over the moon with this one. I repositioned the rod and added another 100-150 baits over the top. Soon the rod was away again and I hook pulled that fish, but only minutes after on the other rod I landed a low double linear mirror, again a lovely looking old dark fish. The lake is known for the quality of its old dark mirrors. I quickly recast the rods and got them back on the rests, then followed up with another 300 baits. As I finished baiting up the right hander went into melt down and after a superb 20-minute battle a lovely old low twenty plus mirror was landed. I thought about packing up then as time was running out, but I decided to give it another 20 minutes and with 5 minutes to go the left hand Delkim was singing at full speed. After a short battle an awesome looking dark scaly mirror was languishing in the fold of my net. This fish also topped 20lb and I was absolutely buzzing.
