No write-up to speak of, just a few captioned pics


On ATC day 1, Iain Murray (my partner) landed the only mirror of the day, I believe. A 27-12 beauty which I had the privilege to net. Beating by 10lb the (only) common I caught... We think this is the same as the one Moses caught last year, but this remains to be checked.  (yes, it was, the fish is dubbed "Pearl").

On ATC day 2, I caught this catfish which actually gave me a nice run. I almost never catch cats, so I was pleasantly surprised. It's probably a PB catfish for me, actually! I didn't weigh it though. I believe somebody caught a 12lb cat during the event, but I don't know the details.

Now that I finally got access to the (formerly wet but now dry) memory card of my (still wet) camera, here is the 29-8 lb Iain landed on ATC Day 2. This was really quite an achievement. Iain located an underwater trench at something like 70 yards out. Found a way to cast in there. Played the fish among many snags. Landed it without any help (I was busy witnessing Jim & Moses numerous catches). And had to climb a few yards of slippery and muddy steep bank with this fish in the net. Then I finally walked back, just in time for the picture!
