A club water has thrown up what could be one of the biggest eels ever to be landed in the UK.
Carp angler Tony Baker floatfished a worm just inches from the bank during a session on the Farnham AS-controlled Stillwater Front Lake when the float dipped, and after a bruising battle the giant fish finally slid in the net.
Once on the scales, the dial swung round to a staggering 8lb 8oz. That would make it the seventh-largest example of the species ever banked, according to data supplied by the National Anguilla Club.
Checks of the scales are due to be performed in the coming weeks to confirm the true weight of the eel.
