What a few days to remember, great fishery, great company and all topped off by my dear friend Jon Berry's capture of that 46, it couldn't have happened to a lovelier bloke than Jon I am chuffed to bits for him.

Terry, Nigel, Bob, David and John thank you for the banter - sorry again for leaving the fruitcake at home on the garage bench!

Skeff - Ashmead was as glorious as ever, the place is a credit to you thank you once again.

Apart from Jon's truly amazing capture I had two non fishing highlights watching a hare in the top field and seeing my first ever Crane which stood still for so long I began to think it was a decoy. In the words of Arnie- I'll be back!

:Hat: :cheers: Les

We were privileged to witness the capture of Moonscale at 46lb this morning, by Jon Berry. Probably the largest carp caught on cane and ‘pin ever.
The rod now has a set in the butt section!

I have recently acquired a Chris Yates Landing Net built by Edward Barder for Jon Berry in 2006 being described as a Carp net but from this photograph I can see why he decided to part with it - clearly to purchase a somewhat larger net.
