A ZANDER that would smash the current British record has been banked by Hertfordshire angler, Adam Wallace.

The beast, weighing 30lb 5oz, was caught from southern Finland’s Lake Päijänne during a recent trip, and is believed to be one of the largest ever captured by a guided customer.

Lure tactics did the damage, with the zander giving a delicate take before all hell broke loose.

“I felt barely a pluck on the braid and hit into what felt like a log, then it took off!” Adam said. “The drag was as tight as I could set it, yet the fish took line as though my reel was a freespool model.”

After an immense battle, Adam got the fish’s head up and eased it into the net.

“It was a moment of elation, and I’d like to thank our guide, Antti Pajunen, without whom I’d never have caught this fish,” he added.
