Not so slippery customer! The 5ft2in girl who took on a 7ft catfish - and won
A woman left her boyfriend reeling after catching a monster record-breaking fish.

Kirstin Hole, 20, landed the enormous catfish that weighed more than her at a staggering 120lbs in front of stunned Lee Pollard, an expert angler himself.

The catch annihilated the previous record for the biggest freshwater fish ever caught in the UK by a woman, which stood at 69lbs 8ozs.

The fish also easily beat boyfriend Lee's biggest catch of the couple's fishing trip at 40lbs.

Kirstin, who is 5ft 2ins tall, said the 7ft long mighty specimen felt more like a bus as he struggled to reel it during an hour long battle.

Kirstin, Lee, 29, and another angler heaved the fish into a weighing sling and they were stunned when it measured 8st 6lbs - about the same as her.

She posed for an obligitatory photo with the catfish before returning it back to the lake alive and well.

Kirstin, a child minder from Lechlade, Glos, and Lee were on a three day trip to the Oakwood Park fishery in Thetford, Norfolk, when she landed the monster from the deep.
She said: 'I have only been fishing for a couple of years since I met Lee and do it for the fun of it.

'Lee is a bit of an expert and runs catfish trips to the River Ebro in Spain, so he knows what he is doing.

'We thought we would spend a couple of days together over here and at 5.15am we were sleeping in our tent when my rod alarm went off, so I got up and grabbed my rod.
