A 7 1/2 lb Brown Trout was caught by a first time Angler in the River Aire – Bingley Length.
Novice angler – Brendan Bailey , 23, caught the ‘zoo creature’ after purchasing a starter kit from KL Tackle , Keighley and a Bingley Angling Club Yearbook.
He has been recovering from a serious accident some years ago and had to have the assistance of a friend to land the fish which took more than 1/2 hour to get in.
The fish fell to a maggot on the feeder after a short while of Brendan starting to fish.
Just goes to show you that there are some very big fish where you least expect them!
