SCHOOL­BOY Owen Gath had a sur­prise with his dad, Tom, on the Leeds-Liver­pool Canal at Arm­ley, in West York­shire, when he hooked a stun­ning 26 lb 4 oz pike.The 14-year-old Bram­ley lad recorded just his sec­ond ever pike while fish­ing with a roach lure.His dad said: “It was a very im­pres­sive fish, and big­ger than my PB of 15 lb 8 oz. I had no idea pike went this big in the canal, and I’ve been fish­ing it since I was five. It was quite a sur­prise!”
