RECORD catfish water – historic Withy Pool in Bedfordshire – has produced a stunning 83 lb giant which could be the same moggie as the British best!

Richard Haskell got the opportunity to fish the now-private two-acre venue as he is pals with the new owner and he had a dream session where he also upped his carp PB from 19 lb to 37 lb 4 oz.

For Richard’s full catch report and a history lesson about the famous water read this week’s Angler’s Mail magazine.
