A splendid Brown of 7lbs for Peter Brewer. The fish was weighed and witnessed. A definite contender for best Brown of the season.















Mark Haycock with what may be the best Brown caught by a member this year. The fish taken at Grafham is around 8lb but not weighed, not surprising that Mark looks so happy.
