Brownie Chews on pike bait

Anglers Mail - - Front Page -

BBC PRE­SEN­TER Will Mil­lard landed a sur­prise 13 lb brown trout whilst leg­ering a whole joey mack­erel for pike at Chew Val­ley Lake, in Som­er­set.

Will, who was in the mid­dle of film­ing a new BBC fish­ing se­ries when the trout took the bait, said: “I was con­vinced it was go­ing to be a PB pike, so I was ab­so­lutely shocked when a gi­ant ‘brownie’ rolled at the net.

“Chew is an ex­traor­di­nary fish­ery and, although the pik­ing has been hard go­ing this sea­son, the brown trout shows the enor­mity of the big-fish po­ten­tial,” added the au­thor of The Old Man and the Sand Eel.
