New personal best pike for comedian

Comedian Paul Whitehouse took part in a charity event on Dorset’s Royalty Fishery where he landed this personal best 26lb pike.

Star of TV sitcoms such as Harry Enfield & Chums and The Fast Show, Paul was fishing as part of a ‘win a day’s angling with a celebrity’ competition in order to help raise money for Guilford based, Cherry Trees Childrens Care Home. A keen angler, the 56-year-old, whose previous best pike weighed 17lb, started the day trotting for silverfish before switching to a small dace livebait, using 30lb braided mainline and a 28lb wire trace and it wasn’t long before he was playing the huge fish.
