Cut tail over 70lbs and a bad back !!

Mark Williamson is still stunned by his
enormous mirror coming over to France and fishing Vallee lake for the 1st time -
Mark said he was hoping to break his fishless dought back in the UK after struggling on his home water . .

Mark arrived on the lake on the 2nd March and opted for swim 9 doubled up with his fishing pal 'Turk'

fishing at range using particle mix and lake special boilies Mark hooked into the leviathan @ 2am and patintly landed her into a waiting net .

Not until both tried to lift the fish out of the water did they relize the size .

Mark ' We had to tripple check the scales and zero in the sling after bottomming our 70lb scales! we finally confirmed the weight @ 71lbs , I stuggled to lift the fish for the photos and pulled my back in the process - but well worth it! '
