Monster ide taken in match!

Match angler Ian Daley was given a huge shock during a recent event on the River Calder when he landed a match-winning 5lb ide.

The Mirfield rod had decided to use pole and maggot for small silverfish but was left gobsmacked when the bonus lump slipped over the rim of his landing net.

Several roach and perch were added to give him a total of 8lb 7oz, which was just about good enough to push out Punky’s rod Stan Haigh who put 7lb 8oz to the scales.
