North Oxford Angling Society chairman Julian Humm is on cloud nine after claiming the Caribbean’s so-called elusive ‘grand slam’ on a Christmas trip to Belize.

Bonefish are quite common, but Humm, from Stadhampton, also nabbed a 25lb tarpon and a 20lb permit fish to complete the fly- fishing treble.

The ‘grand slam’ involves catching one each of these three fish on the same day, which is what Humm did.

“I’m over the moon,” he said. “It’s the best day I’ve had in my 60 years of fishing.”
