Nate beats his personal best with a 5lb 5oz eel

NATE Green smashed his eel personal best by just over 1lb when he won the battle with this 5lb 5oz specimen. He fished an overnight session at his local Woodland Pool in Kent, where he cast out a roach head on a John Sidley rig close to a lily bed around an island. The eel measured 37.5ins long with an 8ins girth, and was beaten on 0.37mm mainline and a size 8 hook.
