The River Trent con­tin­ues to be one of the go-to rivers for big preda­tor ac­tion, as Perry Phillips showed when he net­ted this whop­ping 13lb 7oz zan­der.

The South York­shire Po­lice An­gling Club bailiff tar­geted his own club’s stretch of the mighty wa­ter­way at Lit­tle­bor­ough.

He tempted the spec­i­men on a small dead roach hook­bait fished on a sim­ple leger rig made up with a 20ins wire trace and a 3oz lead.

TOP TIP: “When leg­ering for preda­tors make sure you fish with a slack line. If your line is too tight, the fish is bound to feel the re­sis­tance and will of­ten spit the dead­bait out.”
