A seven-year-old angler has broken the Scottish grayling record after catching a huge specimen from the country’s river Clyde.

At a weight of 3lb 10oz, the impressive fish smashes the previous best for the species, caught from the river Tweed, by over 8oz.

The overjoyed captor, young Sam Thomson from Forth, south Lanarkshire, tempted his catch using floatfished sweetcorn while out with his grandfather.
