Just been speaking to John Miller who runs the Vic Lees Memorials and he tells me there’s a new venue record of 97lb of bream from the Walsall Arboretum.
The catch of 40 bream from peg 25 behind the bandstand fell to Birminghamâ€™s Barry Hall, who fished feeder and worm at range and beat the existing record of 87lb set a couple of years ago by Dave Berrows (whatever happened to him?).
John Miller has just run the Walsall Arboretum AC Vic Lees Memorial and has several junior events lined up including another memorial on the 28th August just for Midlands anglers aged 7-15, which will see trophies and medals handed out thanks to Corus Steel, who Vic used to work for.
The adult version saw Walsallâ€™s Kevin Edwards take the trophy with 12 bream for 28-8-0 from peg 8 by the boat house, again on feeder and worm, just ahead of Mac Pearson who had 27-8-0 of bream and two carp. John can be contacted on 07736 388412.
I was not aware of this information about the new record at Walsall thanks for the information. I was writing on it and this will help me in best essay writing service uk reviews and I can post It on different sites but first I need to confirm that this information is right.
