OUR VER­DICT

An in­cred­i­bly mov­ing cap­ture

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR CATCHES -

THE story of Ed­die Warde’s cap­ture of this Northants forty re­ally moved us. Just a fort­night be­fore his trip, Ed­die’s dad was di­ag­nosed with can­cer and he died five days be­fore the ses­sion.

De­ter­mined to go out and catch a fish in mem­ory of his dad, Ed­die went to Ec­ton Lakes and had the fish he re­ally wanted, the Big Lin at 43lb 4oz.

Ed­die told An­gling Times: “I was in pieces, so af­ter weigh­ing we sacked her as sun­rise was al­most upon us and raised a cel­e­bra­tory beer to my beloved dad, know­ing he had made all my dreams come true. “I just sat in the water with the Big Lin, sob­bing un­til sun­rise.”
