Bless my sole - a record catch!
Published on: 01 Sep 2014
SEA angler Philip Lewis, from Mangotsfield, is celebrating catching a whopping flat fish in the Bristol Channel.
The 2lb 14oz megrim, which he caught 20 miles west of Lundy, has set a new record for the boat AlyKat Too and for the Bristol Channel.
Philip’s catch was verified when the fish was weighted on match scales at Windmill Fishery in Westerleigh.
Philip is a member of West Coast & Watchet Sea Angling Club, a member club of the Bristol Channel Federation Of Sea Anglers.
The megrim is also known as a whiff, sail-fluke or marysole and is sometimes marketed at Cornish sole.
