There is only one way to say this!! the Shrewsbury lads smashed it at J2 landing in total 129 fish!!!!
Luke Tomlins and crew arrived for our opening week on the 1st April 2017 with determination with the aim of walking away with a new record and they did not arrive with failure on their minds.
With a steady start, and picking up pace mid week in the hot weather, they ended the week with a powerful solid number.
Persistent, disciplined and dedicated is the only way i can describe this group! after a quick cuppa in the new lodge followed with the peg draw they were on their way, after setting up, polishing off the evening meal the rods were out, the first night was a bit quieter than we expected, but still some mid to high doubles on the bank the challenge was underway!
With a J2 full English Breakfast under their belts the numbers started stacking up starting with -
