The Birstall, Leicester-based builder was fishing a tough Midlands stillwater when his red letter day struck.
Lee said: ‘The 16 lb 4 oz came from a different spot on a different bank. ‘I fished a single piece of fake corn, then using a fake caster as a stop, just pinned to the deck with a small shot. Also taking fish of 11 lb, 12 lb and 13 lb in the same night.’
