STURGEON CAUGHT AT GATCOMBE

While fishing in the Severn at Gatcombe, during the low water period, on Thursday morning, Evan DAVIES of Nibley, Blakeney, espied a sturgeon which he succeeded in capturing.

The fish was seven feet five inches in length, its girth was three feet, and it was estimated to weight about 180 lbs.

It is some four years since a "royal fish" was previously netted at Gatcombe.
