Angler lands four different 100lb UK fish in 2011

An angler has taken his place in the history books after catching four different species of fish weighing over 100lb from our seas this year.

Mark Nelson capped his remarkable quartet with a 140lb blue shark, fishing off Andrew Alsop's 'White Water II' out of Milford Haven. This was backed up by a terrific 103lb conger eel, a 147lb porbeagle shark and a 117lb skate.

The welshman admits he gets a buzz from catching 'the biggest fish he possibly can'. For the full story see this week's Angling Times.
