So close to a record ray!

While fishing one of the vast sandbanks off the Dorset coast, Toby White came within a whisker of boating a new British record undulate ray after catching this fine specimen weighing in at 20lb 1oz.

The handsome fish, which took a mackerel flapper bait trailing off a running leger rigfalls just 1lb 3oz short of equalling the British boat-caught record for the species.

It was beaten with a 30lb class outfit while Toby was fishing aboard Top Cat 3, skippered by Weymouth skipper Ivan Wellington.
