Two lake bests in two weeks for 13-year-old

Just four months into his angling career, 13-year-old William Bennett has caught the two biggest fish of the year at his Colne Valley club water.

The teenager began fishing in April and has been focusing his efforts on Boley Road Lake on the Colnes Angling Society ticket.

His dad Paul said: “On his third fishing trip he caught a 15lb carp and that was the start – at that point he was hooked on carp fishing. So every Saturday from that day he has fished for carp.

“On only his third visit to Boley Road he caught a 26lb 8oz common, then two weeks after that he caught the 24lb mirror.”
