Roman Vann 5lb 12oz Eel

Roman Vann got his season off to a flyer after he managed this lovely pb 5lb 12oz eel which broke a 15 year quest for a new personal best.

Roman told us “I managed a 5lb eel last week from a southern pit, so I returned this week and managed to bag myself another 5 but this time it was in the shape on a new personal best. A rig that’s been a revelation for me is is the dyson rig with 4 lobworms as hookbait fished over an area of dead red maggots, every single eel has been hooked square in the top lip which has meant I have been able to get the hook out easily which as many eel anglers know, can be very tricky at times.”
