Breaking news - unknown 41lb 8oz pike caught in Yorkshire

A massive 41lb 8oz pike has been taken from a notoriously tough Yorkshire trout water.

The previously unknown fish was caught by an angler who was fishing the venue for the first time, and incredibly came on just his third cast of the day, using a lure from the bank.

The fishery only allows only a few pike fishing days per winter and the biggest pike ever taken before was just 26lb. For the full story and pictures see next Tuesday’s Angling Times.
