64lb Welsh sturgeon

Robert Poulter had a fight on his hands when he won a battle with this huge sturgeon.
The specimen topped the scales at 64lb and was the highlight of the 18-year-old’s holiday at the prolific Celtic Lakes in Wales.
It was fooled by the keen angler from Solihull, Birmingham, with legered boilies fished in conjunction with 20lb mainline, a 30lb braided hooklink and a size 6 hook.
