Graham celebrates 99th twenty in style

Graham Slater caught his 99th twenty amid an impressive haul he shared with his boat partner Howard Thomas on the PAC's Menteith event on Saturday.

But while five fish over the magical mark graced their net, the day didn't go entirely to plan.

Just 10 minutes before Ms 99 came along, a rod went over the side, Lincolnshire-based Graham told PAC News.

"I caught the braid with a dawg, handlined it in til I came to the spool knot and got it back," he said.

"I wound the braid back onto the spool and re-cast a sardine and this took it almost straight away."
