Greys Academy member Ed Betteridge has landed a lovely 44lb mirror.

Fishing on Christchurch Lake in the early hours of Tuesday morning, Ed managed to land the 44.14lb fish which goes by the name of Poolie.

Ed said ; “I have really want to catch Poolies ever since I saw a photo of it and then when I netted it for a mate in March and saw it in the flesh it became a higher priority on my wish list. Its unique scale pattern from its big plated linear scales to the small pearly scales on its flank and dark colouration make a special fish to catch”
