South­ern supremacy

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

I’M not sur­prised that most record hold­ers and for­mer Dren­nan Cup win­ners are from the South.

South­ern venues seem to be awash with big fish while we in the North make do with the scraps.

I have been for­tu­nate enough to land bar­bel to 13lb, chub to just over 6lb and a 2lb roach but I strug­gle to think of places lo­cally where I could catch fish to im­prove on th­ese per­sonal bests.

There are plenty of fish up north, but it’s go­ing to take an aw­ful long time be­fore one of our coun­ties grabs another Bri­tish record. Michael Burns, York
