Norfolk’s Highbridge Fisheries – famed for its elusive specimen roach – has thrown up another of her giants in the shape of this beautiful 3lb 11oz redfin to big fish ace Dan Woolcott. 

The Kent angler, who had spent long hours mapping the venue out when the water was low in summer, baited up with hemp, dead maggots and sweetcorn close to an underwater ledge, fishing a grain of corn groundbait feeder style.

Thing weren’t easy though – the personal best came from his only bite at the 6.5 acre lake seven hours into the session.
