A big catch for little Joe

Have your say

It’s great to see fishing clubs encouraging young anglers and Shaws Sheds have a great way of doing it.

Joseph Bentley might be just seven -years-old but he’s allowed to pleasure fish within the match on the next peg to his dad. Good job he’s not allowed to fish for the pools because during the club’s latest outing at Candy Corner he put together a catch of crucian carp weighing 36lb and topped this off with a 12lb common carp using nothing more than a top 2 kit and a few maggots. His 48lb total would have put him third overall in the match and definitely given one or two grown-ups red faces!
