‘Pre­his­toric’ giant beaten on feeder rod!

Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

THIS 165lb white stur­geon was tamed on a feeder rod from a pri­vate lake in Italy.

The cap­tor was French an­gler Seb Nash, an angling adren­a­line junkie who spe­cialises in tar­get­ing huge fish on pole or heavy match tackle.

Seb landed the pre­his­tori­clook­ing spec­i­men at mid­night fol­low­ing a 30-minute tus­sle on 30lb line, a size 6 hook and a 3.8m feeder rod.

He float­fished a piece of smoked her­ring in the mar­gins over a bed of pel­lets for his prize.
