Combe Martin SAC member Ross Stanway fished with his brother Jonathan on damp and drizzly evening with a lively sea.  Jonathan hooked a Conger of 10lb 8oz early on in the evening; his biggest to date having not really done much eel fishing. I joked. “Imagine what one 3 times the size fights like!”. Ross then illustrated his point landing an eel of 30lb 3oz!
