July 2018 – Specimen Claims

Notes from the Fish Recorder

 Hi there!

                       

                        What some great weather we’ve had and some good fish recorded as well. Hopefully this will continue into the autumn. It’s good to see that the boat anglers among you are being able to get afloat and finding the decent fish.

I’ve heard of several species being caught, which are not usually taken within British waters amongst them being an Axillary Sea Bream. It appears that this might be the only one ever taken within our waters. Unfortunately, not within the Bristol Channel. Although this fish will not win any award from the BCFSA it is great to put it into our database.

If you haven’t already done so contact the secretary and make sure that you advertise next year’s opens run by your club. The handbook will be going into publication at the end of September. It’s a good place to let the angling fraternity know of your competition dates well in advance.

Will update you in a month.

All the best

Keith Reed. Fish Recorder
