1lb dace caught from urban Kent waterway

Big fish angler Iain McDonald took a break from catching specimen tench and carp to target his local river - and was rewarded with a number of dace topped by this 1lb fish.

The Kent-based rod arrived at an urban stretch of the waterway and setup a simple stick float rig with strung out shot and a size 18 hook before feeding his swim with loose-fed maggots. Within a few casts he was catching dace to over 10oz using double maggot hookbaits before slipping the net under the prized specimen.
