Billy Freame

UK PB Aug 2016 46lb 4oz mirror Meadows Lake, Holme Fen, Cambs.

Caught on Mistral’s sweet biscuit boilies.

I started Carp fishing age 11 with friends from school at Stanwick Lakes and Drayton Reservoir and just a few years later when the schooldays were over I got a job at Mistral Baits Ltd.

My first chores were simple factory jobs but I soon took on more responsibilities, after 5 years gaining the needed experience, including assisting in production planning and managing when called on. I have now been there 7 years apart from a short sabbatical.

I generally fish locally with Elsons being a particular favourite at Stanwick Lakes in Northampton. This history steeped water is well worth a visit and I have taken fish to 30lbs from there. My aim is to get both of the known 40’s from there as soon as I can.

I go to France once a year, fishing Gigantica several times. My biggest from there is 46:12 taken in September 2018.

My favourite bait is Mistral frozen Belachan Shrimp which i have caught a lot of fish on this when others have failed.
