  • The captor of this huge striped bass should have won great acclaim and respect for his world record. Instead, he received hate mail and death threats. We tell the story of how Al McReynolds caught his 78lb 8oz fish.
  • He was a casting champion and a brilliant catcher of spectacularly large fish. We look at the talents of FWK Wallis, whose skills with a centrepin reel are legendary.
  • Jack Gartside, the author and ace fly tyer, has died aged 66. Friends have fondly described him as “the original trout bum”.
  • The revelation that the hair-rig is far older than we believed has taken a new twist with the discovery of a 1965 article in a French magazine detailing how to use it for catching big tench.
  • Master swindler Bernie Madoff may have been worth billions at one time, but he didn’t spend much of his fortune on decent tackle.
  • Leaping carp are an internet hit. But they could cost local communities millions and prove and environmental disaster.
  • The man who was the underbidder on that famous Ustonson brass multiplying reel gives his opinion on its age and pedigree.
