Ellis Titheridge with his Winning Fish Of The Week Personal Best 5lb 2oz Golden Orfe from the Specimen Tench and Orfe Lake, what a Beauty!!
Ellis Story –
“I have been coming to Anglers Paradise for several years and in the early years I mainly targeted the Carp but this year I really wanted to catch a big Orfe and a big Tench so I set up on the Specimen Tench and Orfe on Sunday afternoon.
After seeing some big Orfe cruising around the island I started firing out maggots and after 10 minutes they starting taking them without any fear and I soon had them in a frenzy!! So I fished a maggot feeder float with a 8 inch hook length and I was soon catching some of the smaller Orfe, although I did catch a white one that weighed 4lb on the nose, I was made up!
I then spotted this huge golden one come out from the the pads so I cast over towards it and it circled it once and then bang it nabbed it! After a short fight I landed what could only describe as a PIG! At 5lb 2oz, I blew away my previous best of 1lb 14oz what a stunning fish from a pukka venue!”
WELL DONE ELLIS, ANOTHER GREAT WINNER AND AN ABSOLUTE STUNNER!!
