New BPS member James Gilchrist broke his previous personal best of 15 1/2 pounds in style the other week with a magnificent River Wye 31.02 giant.
This magnificent fish fell to tandem mounted wobbled spratts fished slowly across a crystal clear river. James saw the fish follow his bait across the river before engulfing the bait.
15 arm aching minutes later this fish was the result.
James enjoyed his first ever national Team Selection Final last November narrowly missing out an an immediate place in this years British Squad to face the Irish ain October on British soil, however as reserve he will still have a large part to play for Great Britain.
