Young Evan Hegarty can’t hide his joy as he poses with his first-ever 20-pounder.
The 11-year-old smashed his personal best with this 27lb mirror from Naseby Reservoir in Northamptonshire.
Evan was fishing a seven-hour day session alongside his uncle Cavan Soal and Cavan’s friend Jonathan Spaulding, who banked a 26-pounder himself.
“His face says it all!” Cavan told Carpfeed. “It was 27lb on the nose and Evan fished glugged CC Moore hookbaits over CC Moore Pacific Tuna pellets.
“Evan’s previous pb was 9lb 3oz, so this is his first 20.”
