British dace record shaker from the River Test

The River Test comes in to its silverfish peak at this time of year and Bryan Jarrett made the most of it when he caught this 1lb 2oz specimen.

Fishing the waterway under the guidance of big fish enthusiast Andy Little, the Hinders of Swindon boss used a maggot feeder attack with an 0.13mm hooklength to a size 18 hook.
Roach, grayling and even the occasional sea trout fell foul to the tactic before dace of just over 1lb and the biggest of the session invaded the swim.

“The current British record stands at 1lb 5oz and I think this fish could break that later this winter,” explained Bryan.
