Angling legend Tommy Pickering couldn’t believe his eyes when he netted a rod and reel combo worth £200!
The Preston Innovations-backed angler was enjoying a day on Oasis Lake at Lincolnshire’s Lindholme Lakes when he hooked into a big fish on the pole. Having lost the fish in a snag, Tommy tried to pull for a break – but instead he gradually retrieved something that turned out to be the top quality items of tackle. “I’ve never landed anything like this before,” he said. “It was even more bizarre as the tackle was all manufactured by my sponsors! I couldn’t stop laughing.”
