I am 13 yrs old and haven't been fishing for long (about 2 months) and caught this fish yesterday at my local pond just 5 mins away. It put on a bit of a fight but nothing I couldn't deal with. It was about a 20 m cast by a small island. What a fish!
It was my 8th visit to the venue and never broke the 25bl mark. Its been a long wait for this one.I am going to get my scales checked just for my peace of mind.
Many thanks to Steve,Rod for there advise and help to catch such a great fish.
