River record dace!

Vince Cater takes 1lb 3oz Bristol Avon best

Vince Cater – 1lb 3oz dace

by Angling Times |

Wiltshire angler Vince Cater landed the fish of a lifetime on a recent session, in the form of this 1lb 3oz dace from the Bristol Avon. The fish is not only a new PB, but also river record. Vince was fishing with his son Harry, trotting red maggots.

He told us:

“I had a run of sensational dace up to 15oz before hooking what I thought was a trout on my last trot through.

"It was an absolute leviathan of a dace. I knew it had passed the 1lb mark, but I wasn’t prepared for it to go 1lb 3oz.

"In this shot, it’s braced with a 14oz fish, which gives you an idea of its true scale!”
