    Default The Special Album

    If any of you are coming to our giant Carp Show 2004 at Five Lakes, Essex over the coming weekend, I will have my Special Carp Album with me. It contains some of the finest big carp this country has ever produced. The current record for the longest person to view the albums contents is held by Adam Penning. He opened the first page a 6.45pm one evening and turned the last page at 11.45pm (for the last two hours he used a head torch). Site members are most welcome to view this incredible document that covers 50-years of carp fishing. Just find the Carp-Talk stand at the showÂ… be ready for a treat!

    Great Album, Fantastic Pictures and brilliant tales from the man that knows. Me and my son spent a good bit of time with Chris viewing this and it is a real treat

    I heard a story from Chris at the Sandown Show ... it had nothing to do with fishing, and I'm not the type to blush

    Its true though ... Chris IS the Benny Hill of Carp Fishing

    Having spent much time gazing over Chris's special book, this is a real treat - don't miss the oppurtunity whatever you do lads.
