Ahoy there BCC Members. Going fishing? Then text me those pictures via FACEBOOK to the BRITISH CONGER CLUB or by email to

webmaster@britishcongerclub.org.uk

Use FACEBOOK messenger to send pictures to the BCC. Please remember we will only post pictures of fish returned to the sea.

BCC PRESIDENT MIKE MILLMAN

Our long time BCC President Mike Millman has decided not to seek re-election at the 2018 AGM. As a long term Life Member will still retain his Membership of the BCC.

We are now seeking someone to replace Mike and become the new BCC President. If you know of someone you like to see in this position please contact our Secretary Nigel McLoughlin with your suggestion.

OUR WEATHER
Once again the weather is limiting everyone ability to go to sea.


Not sure why it's so windy everywhere, but it's not just in the UK. Here in Florida it has blown for weeks. In my garden we have even had a few Palm Trees blown down, so that's how strong the wind is. It's been almost gale force every day.

BCC MEMBER PAUL MARIS

There is nothing worse than having to report that a BCC Member has suffered a stroke.

Long time BCC Life Member Paul Maris suffered a stroke whilst flying home from a Fishing Tournament in Mauritius. Paul is now recovering in a hospital near Barcelona, until he is fit enough to fly.

We all wish Paul a speedy recovery.

As you all know Paul is the BCC Fish Recorder, so any data that he has on file may take a little longer to report at the moment. At the moment I am unable to Report who won the BCC Shore Championships.

CONGER DATA TABLE

Our Conger Data Table is gradually being uploaded thanks to the dedication of a few people. Id is difficult to comprehend given that most anglers now conform to CATCH & RELEASE that we have not had more information.

So if you want to know the weight of that Conger Eel based on length alone our table when completed will be able to give you that Estimated Weight.
 

However that idea seems a long way off given the lack of entries.

I have to thank Charter Skipper Kevin McKie of "SIZE MATTERS" for supporting our entries and BCC Secretary Nigel McLoughlin. .

BCC SHORE CONGER CHAMPIONSHIP

The BCC Shore Championships are now completed. I have yet to be informed of a winner.
