The Big Fish Off TV star Dean Macey has broken his barbel personal best with a stunning 16lb 2oz fish, just 24 hours after banking one of 14lb 14oz too!

Both bronze bullets came from the River Lea where the Tackle Guru man wrapped a Mainline Hybrid boilie in matching paste, on a simple running rig.

“It’s always a real buzz catching fish for the cameras when you’re shooting for TV, but I really can’t wait to get out there and do my own fishing. This catch means a great deal to me and alongside an 8lb chub, it’s my best ever fish!” he said.
