HAYLING Island angler and www.total-fishing.com regular Adrian Farley was so pleased with this cod he took he wanted us to post it on his favourite website.

The 18lb 2oz fish is a personal best from the beach and was tempted from virtually outside Adrian’s back door at Eastoke Corner, the lucky fella.

He caught it at 10pm on Pennell rigged double squid. “We don’t get many cod here, but the ones we do get are ‘ooooge!” he said.
