Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

THIS un­usual-look­ing pike fell to Scot­tish an­gler Robert Far­rell from an un­named loch in Scot­land, and pulled the scales round to 30lb 14oz.

Robert tempted it on a 25cm, rudd-coloured Sav­age Gear Line Thru Roach lure.

It sets a new per­sonal best for the Sav­age Gear con­sul­tant, who said: “I was trolling a lure for hours and then the rod bent round, but I wasn’t sure if it had just snagged.

“When I re­alised it was a fish I thought it had been foul-hooked, as it felt very heavy but put up very lit­tle re­sis­tance.”
