A 21-year-old man was left reeling when he caught a 'monster fish' as he fished at a Northamptonshire lake last weekend.
Daniel Sibley from Leicester was carp fishing when the huge 108lb fish took the bait but ripped the line at the same time. The keen fisherman then jumped into the lake and wrestled the fish for two hours eventually bringing it to land.
Daniel has named the fish 'Big Al' after a friend who passed away in 2012 and says nothing like it has been caught in the lake before.
