Forget about cricket, mate - show me your Pommie fish!

What are the chances of an Australian fishing mate coming to stay in the UK on the very day when England comprehensively win the Ashes? Sadly, Al McGlashan, the professional recreational ‘fisho’, film maker, writer and photographer who helped me get to grips with fishing Down Under, must be the only living Australian who neither understands cricket or who genuinely doesn’t give a ‘rat’s arse’ about the great game - a rare breed indeed! ...

In 1989 and 1990 the widely respected all-rounder, Martin Gay, hooked and landed a phenomenal catch of big common carp, topped by a fish he reported at 48lbs.

The Bognor Bag

Your editor is something of a hero, you know….
