ANGLER Paul Stevens dives in to take a snap with his catch – a 28½ stone Halibut.
It is the largest fish of its kind caught by a Brit, measuring over 7 feet in length.
Paul, 45, from Norwich, caught it off Norway and estimates it to be up to 90 years old.
He said: “It dragged the boat half a mile.
“It took three days for my shoulders to recover.
“I put it back. It’s breeding material.”
“It was a bit emotional.
“I spent many years trying to catch a fish like that.”
Atlantic halibut is one of the largest bony fish in the world.
They can grow up to 15 feet in length and weigh up to 700 pounds.
