Girl (6) gives adults a fishing lesson

Six-year-old Jasmine Walker put many a seasoned specimen angler to shame when she landed this terrific 9lb 2oz tench.

The big tinca came from a Midlands gravel pit and easily beat her biggest ever previous fish, which was a 4lb barbel last year.

It was Jasmine’s first overnight fishing trip with dad Stuart. The specimen was taken at 6am on an imitation corn hookbait.
