Worlds biggest stingray ever caught

It took 90 minutes to land, 13 men to heave it out of the water… and weighed 55 stone when they finally got it to the scales. So it’s little wonder that when Ian Welch first hooked the record stingray, it almost pulled him into the river. The angler, from Aldershot, Hampshire, was fishing in Thailand when he landed the ray, which is the biggest freshwater fish to be caught with a rod, with over 7ft long and wide, with a tail of 10ft.
