Bryan banks new personal best eel

In-form specimen angler Ted Bryan added another personal best to his incredible list of giants when he banked a 6lb 9oz eel.

The Sydenham, London-based all-rounder took the fish during a weekend trip to a Sussex club water. It fell legered lobworms and was the best of 12 eels the former Drennan Cup winner banked in the busy session.
