FREDDIE Redding became the latest in a long line of young anglers to bank specimen fish this season when he landed this stunning 3lb 14oz crucian.

It’s a catch that’ll make the seven-year-old the envy of seasoned specimen hunters all over the country, although his dad Mike revealed that it took his son a little while to realise just how special the feat was.

“He was fishing with his stepdad at Stack Pool in Kidderminster and landed the crucian on a rig baited with a kernel of fake pink maize,” he said.

“It’s an amazing achievement, as proved by the comments we’ve had from people who’ve targeted the species for over 40 years and have yet to catch anything like it.

“I just hope he continues to enjoy his fishing – he goes every week!”
