Three personal best eels in a month

Barry Fisher has enjoyed a memorable spell of eel fishing, breaking his personal best for the species three times in a month.

His run of form started at the National Anguilla Club fish-in at a Hants stillwater during which he landed a specimen of 5lb 2oz.

He then turned his attentions to his own water in the West Midlands where he landed eels of 5lb 2oz, 5lb 5oz and 5lb in three separate sessions.

He said: “Six weeks ago my eel pb was 4lb 8oz, and I’ve now had four fish over this weight as well as lots of other back-up three and four pounders. It’s been crazy eeling!”
