A New Lake Record


Congratulations to Stephen Marks, who now holds the lake record at Boux with this 62lb mirror.

'I have just finished my week at boux which was last week and wanted to contact you guys with some great news. Although the first 3 days we had had nothing but spawning and a very quiet lake. Come the Friday I was finally into my first and only fish but to my amazement was greeted with a huge head and mouth of a 62lb mirror.

I don't recall seeing one at this size before and think it could be a record, after looking back on the sites photos I think the same fish was caught last June at 58lb.'

Patience is a Virtue

Angling Lines field testers Paul Cooper and Jim Kelly joined two of us from the Angling Lines office on a week's fishing trip to one of our personal favourite big fish waters, Boux. 

Here's Paul's article from the trip...

'Sometimes you can take your fishing ability for granted, making your expectations too unrealistic for your own good. This visit to Boux in August 2014 was a typical example.

I would not normally have a particular area of lake as my target, but having previous knowledge of Boux, I realised that I would struggle to fish on the wood bank due to my recent knee operation. So my camping area for the week was going to be on the un-shaded dam wall, not the best position on Boux in August, but with easy access to the water and soft ground to kneel on, I had little choice. Jim decided to join me on the dam to assist me in case I got into any difficulty and so that we could leave the wood bank to Dave and Heather Keep who were due to arrive on Sunday...'

Boux Carp on the Cover

We came across this 1991 Carpworld cover featuring Tim Paisley with a Boux mirror.

How fantastic to still be at the top of it's game after all this time and with some real history behind the lake.
