Default Fish of the Month for November 2012

Hi everyone,

Here are the nominations for the November 2012 Fish of the Month competition sponsored by Pallatrax.

Don't forget to add the weight of your fish to your gallery entries to ensure they're eligible for the competition. I don't include fish stated simply as 'double', even though they're obviously potential winners.

Many thanks to Pallatrax who offer a fantastic prize to the winner every month.


Nene - 17lb 8oz


Dorset Stour - 14lb 12oz


Warks Avon - 13lb 10oz


Colne - 15lb 5oz


Tame - 14lb 8oz (RR)

a 17 is a rare fish anywhere, and gets my vote, but if there was a beautiful photo competition, it would have to be the stour fish - lovely fish, and the photo really shows it off to it's best.

Is there no way that Decembers, Januarys, Februarys and Marchs could all be caught up on before the season starts? Get it back up and running in a more timely and relevant fashion as it were.

As in, at the time of Nigels catch off the Nene it was thought of as one of the best barbel catches ever. Now, it is only just seen as better than a daytime fish!

Normally I vote for junior members/youngsters as the freebies will mean alot more to them than the adults who have been entered. But in this instance Im intrigued as to why Nigels fish hasnt run away with it?

I'm certainly hoping to catch up before the start of the season Ash.

Point taken.

Cheers,

Andy

Ash,
As I pointed out earlier, slightly tongue in cheek, we all have different ways of measuring the criteria for our vote. Yes, you're correct in saying that Nigels was the best catch of big Barbel of all time.(to date)..certainly beyond what I can ever expect to achieve or even dream about...But, I for one am judging what is before me and although it's a tremendous fish I don't feel that the picture is the most pleasing. I don't expect you to agree with me as I say we all have our own yardstick but I think that is why Nigel hasn't run away with it....there's many a politician however who would like a 9% lead in the poles!
