Caught by the River

Same Old Faces, Same Old Faces

16th May 2008

We’ve had a great response to Mark Hodkinson’s piece on Barry Hines (“German Bight”, May 7th), including a great clip sent in by Steve Philips. Congratulations are due to Steve for landing his first carp in six years with a 14lb common from an Oxfordshire estate lake, yesterday. I should add that Steve is neither crap nor obsessed with gudgeon, and that for most of those six years, his gear was impounded due to being caught in the crossfire of the Bedford vs. Bedford war.
