5lb 5oz Personal Best Eel For Nate

Nate Green smashed his eel personal best by just over 1lb when he won the battle with this 5lb 5oz specimen.

He fished an overnight session at his local Woodland Pool in Kent and cast out a roach head on a John Sidley rig close to a bed of lilies around an island.

The eel measured 37.5 inches in length and eight inches around and was beaten with 0.37mm mainline and a size 8 hook.
