  • Massive 7lb 10 oz Eel landed in Sussex water

    Massive 7lb Eel landed by Haywards Heath & District Angling Society member...

    The captor was Rowland Smith, who during a match held on their Balcombe Lake on Sunday 30th June, was swingtipping with a feeder about 60m out using a 6lb breaking strain line straight through to the hook.

    The bait was a hair rigged worm and he had great difficulty persuading the fish into his landing net.

    This must be one of the biggest eels landed anywhere in Sussex for a long time.
