Kingfisher is flying mate,

Iain Macmillan is over for a 4 dayer and his mate, Lloyd, is 11-0 up after a day and a bit!!

Fox is fishing pretty well too, Ian Russell is over with Terry Hearn's dad and a couple of other friends and they've had a fair few now, Ian's on 6, Terry's dad has had 5 inc. a couple of lovely 40's, Stacey and Matt have chipped in with some 20's and upper 30's!

A good mate of mine is here as well and although he's not caught yet, his Partner has bagged a couple of nice 20's!

The Heron party had a tough week in the end, the 8 of them only managed to bank 7 fish, with the biggest going 50lb+ but 2 of them rustled up 7 from their last night by switching to Attila!

Devastated, fella.. I'll happily argue until I'm blue in the face that Bruno was without question one of the most iconic fish of ALL time!

As previously stated, there have been others that are bigger, MUCH bigger even, scalier and a smidge darker BUT I have never seen a fish with his qualities at that size. In fact, I'd go so far as to say it was absolutely scale perfect and even after he received the scar, I think that just gave the fish a little character and didn't detract from it one bit..

I'll leave it there for fear of sounding like an oddbod who was fixated by a carp but it's safe to say that although his place in the ranks will be filled in the near future by one or two others (White Tips is now on a par, weight wise and the Unknown is rapidly taking on Bruno's legendary colouration), he's already etched his name into Abbey folklore and the staff here are crestfallen by what's happened, especially as it was a bolt from the blue!

Hope no one on here has taken offence to my little send off I gave him on FB, I wasn't trying to glorify the fish in anyway or put him up as some sort of carpy martyr but both Seb and I felt it was only right that we released the news asap and gave everyone the heads up on what had occured.... I can think of others that wouldn't have.. For various reasons!!

Many thanks for all the kind messages I've received too, touched as well by the number of people that thought it was fitting I was the last person to bank the fish.

So, to an incredible beast.. RIP mon ami!

Ru, sorry to hear about Bruno passing. What an extraordinary looking carp. I just wish I had been one of the lucky few to have looked at him in my net.

Hi mate,

Glad you enjoyed yourself and got that all important 40+

It'd be nice to see a pic, naming's normally for 55lb fish but I'll bear you in mind for sure

Hopefully the food scare won't last too long over here and things'll get back to normal asap, we're having yet another re-jig of the menu as I write and once everything's in-house, that should be the end of any probs caused by outside sources!!

Hopefully see you again in the near future,

Ru

Hi matey,

There are some and the obvious Tench (they're in all the lakes here) but not enough to punish you if you use hemp, corn and pellet!

hi Rupert Paul here, me and ken had a great time and achieved what we wanted to do, beat our pb's. I will see if I can figure out how to post the photo of that 40 I caught p.s I've nick-named it apple slice because of the big scale hope ya don't mind.
the breakfast was great every morn but dinner in a bun for 4 days needs to be addressed although I do understand the situation your in.
all in all a good time was had and we would be happy to return, and thanks for all the effort you put in and maps you drew. top fella hats off to you.

Hi mate, there's very little weed to mention, although there are a few snags. With that in mind, spooling up with some strong mono or fluoro is ideal. I'd also invest in some size 4 hooks (as a minimum). Bait-wise, the WildBoar fish love a fruity/sweet boilie but swerve the 50kg and aim for around 1kg per rod, per day, that should be ample but if not, we have plenty of stock in the shop here! It's also worth bringing a few kg of mixed 2-8mm pellet

Regards

Ru
