Middy backed ace Jimmy Brooks proved just why he earns his place in the current issue of Pole Fishing yesterday, after smashing yet another venue record - this time at Westwood Lakes near Boston.
Readers of this months Pole fishing magazine will have had the pleasure of reading Jimmy Brooks thoughts on big weights and how to break venue records and in comical blue peter style he’s produced his own “this is one I prepared earlier” moment!
The young angler from Downham Market is rapidly making a name for himself and his extremely efficient style of fishing has seen him break several venue records in the last 12 months. No sooner had the latest issue hit the shelves and he was in record-breaking form again smashing both the lake and venue record at Lincolnshire’s popular Westwood lakes.
Drawn on Osprey Lake in the final day of the Westwood Lakes Middy summer festival Jimmy knew he needed a convincing section win to be in with a shout of taking the festival and he didn’t disappoint. Fishing pellet shallow at just 4m Jimmy managed to bag a staggering 548 f1’s for a record breaking weight of 308lb 2oz that’s an f1 every 33 seconds leaving him 50lb clear of his nearest rival. Anyone who knows Jimmy will know just how good he is at speed fishing and it’s hard to imagine anyone being able challenge his latest record in the foreseeable future.
To top off a brilliant day the catch and match win was enough to help Jimmy to win the festival just ahead of Matt Pillay.
