FISH OF THE WEEK WINNER ISSubscribe to our RSS news feed

Mark Woodgate 57 from Ashford, Middlesex who caught a fish he never even knew existed – a 2lb 14oz Blue Tench from the Specimen Tench and Orfe Lake on Trout Pellet Paste, now it may not be a big fish but it is for it's type of species!! Mark went on an experience day with Bill and Virginia Rushmer and couldn’t believe his eyes when he landed such a rare fish!

Mark’s Story –

"We had an amazing fortnight with you at Anglers Paradise.  Despite the rain, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and caught many beautiful fish.  Mark had an absolutely fantastic time on the Specimen Tench and Orfe Lake, and was bursting with excitement that – having taken on board all of Bill’s advice – he managed to catch a fish that he had never seen before.  Bill was very enthusiastic about the catch and told Mark that he thought it should be Fish of the Week as it was rare and not far away from record size of it’s particular type. Hence Mark’s excitement and application!

 Thank you Zenia, Zyg and everyone at Anglers Paradise for everything, it is such a unique and wonderful place.  We love spending time with you in Devon and look forward to seeing you all again soon".

WELL DONE MARK!

ALSO SPECIAL THANKS TO BILL AND VIRGINIA RUSHMER FOR GIVING HIM THE TIPS TO CATCH THIS RARE BLUE TENCH!

Here he is with his Winning Fish and being presented his prizes by Zyggy and Zenia.
