During the many years I spent fishing in my childhood I never had access to a camera and the scales I owned were very unreliable. Only recently have I started taking photos and keeping a fishing diary.
The list is mainly from 2010 onwards, with the odd entry from earlier of captures that I can remember.
Barbel - 11lb 3oz (August 2015)
Chub - 6lb 6oz (January 2017)
Dace - 12oz (summer 1996) - This was in the Angling Times when I was younger, but I have caught a number of dace pushing the pound mark as there was a time on my local river when these were caught regularly.
Eel - 2lb 15oz (August 2014)
Grass carp - 8lb 8oz ( June 2015)
Grayling - 1lb 1oz (September 2014)
Pike - 19lb 2oz (January 2017)
the same time period, but I can definitely remember a fish of 2lb 2oz.
Rudd - nothing over a pound.
Tench - 6lb 12oz (June 2015)
Trout (rainbow) - 2lb 7oz (May 2014)
I will aiming to beat a number of these personal bests each year, especially my pike pb.
