Ant Glascoe Jnr was buzzing following the capture of this immaculate 25lb-plus canal pike.
The Manchester predator fishing expert was testing the new Black Savage rods from Savage Gear when he worked an 8ins lure to attract the huge pike’s attention.
He and his friend Danny Esox, from Huddersfield, who banked this big double also had six other predators into double figures during their productive session on a canal in the south of the UK.
“We are travelling the country fishing so many different waters and getting some real results where ever we go,” Ant said.
“I was really buzzing after catching this fish, as I don’t think I’ve ever caught a fish with such stunning markings and colouration,” he said.
