DACE make a rare starring appearance in the Mail this week, but none of the masses seen caught by Dave Harrell in p.28-31 of this week’s magazine were anywhere near as big as this one!

This beautiful 15 oz dace came in a mixed bag for all-rounder Gary Truelove who spent the day trotting a float on the Hampshire Avon at Winkton.

For the full stunning photograph and details, plus the Dave Harrell’s River Wye dace feature, buy this week’s Angler’s Mail magazine.
