MONSTER STURGEON CAUGHT

The only sturgeon caught so far in the River Severn this season, was the one which was secured at Gatcombe, near Blakeney, on Thursday morning.

It was taken taken during the low water period by Evan DAVIS.

Having set at the monster and succeeding in drawing it into his net by careful manipulation and skilful handling, he enticed it from the water, which was knee deep, to the sand, where it became easy prey.

The "Royal Fish" was seven feet five inches in length, and three feet in firth, whilst it was estimated to weight 180 lbs.
