The Gurm’s out at 51lb

Angling Times (UK) - - CATCHES OF THE WEEK -

THE Gurm, the big­gest res­i­dent of Fry­ern­ing Fish­eries’ Main Lake, has been caught at 51lb.

Alex Maguire-Smith stalked the big mir­ror close to the edge dur­ing an 18-hour ses­sion at the Es­sex venue.

The 24-year-old from Har­low said: “I watched it pa­trol past nu­mer­ous times and placed a rig when it had gone, and the magic hap­pened shortly af­ter!”

It was a new UK per­sonal best for Alex, who pre­sented a Baitcraft Su­per K boilie 10ft from the bank on a hinged stiff rig mated to a 1oz lead.
