Victoria Izzard caught a cod on her first-ever sea fishing attempt.

Victoria Izzard caught this superb spring cod on her first-ever sea fishing adventure.

Vicky from Axbridge, has been wanting to start fishing for some time, inspired by her boss Nicky Frewin, who is an England ladies international sea angler.

She finally got her chance when Nicky’s coach John Lintern of Weston Sea Angling Association agreed to start showing her the ropes with some basic fishing techniques.

The fishing kicked off two hours before high water on the seafront at Weston and it was on the flooding tide when the cod fell for Victoria’s juicy Lugworm bait. After a short battle, Vicky beached her prize.
