    Just a reminder for you guys...you haven't got long as I am going to finish this comp off next week!:cool: For newer members who may not be aware, the pic of the carp must be on a brag mat or ruler with the length visible. The code word 'volta' must be visible in the pic. Last but not least, it is a 'mystery length' comp and so far we have narrowed it down to being between 9 and 28 cm's. Prize will be provided by Kev...possibly a BCF voucher from memory.
    Cheers
    Jim

    Demerit points should be awarded for failure to attend! The carp are going to have to wait on my front too! Heading off after work Friday on a redfin/yella hunt and more importantly, to avenge my loss to the boys on our last trip.

    Thanks to my inability to catch a carp and overall incompetence...the answer is yes, it is still going! To save you some reading, I think we have narrowed the mystery length down to between 9 and 26 cm's.

    Welcome to the site as well!
    Cheers

    I am all put out. I feel deprived by a lot of selfish inconsiderate moderators. We have no carpus horribilus in the area.

    I agree the bloody moderator is very inconsiderate, we don't want you to feel left out so we will post a few hundred to you at no charge. We have plenty to go around, we don't mind sharing

    Since I've been trying to catch a carp named 'Volta', I've caught approximately zero fish, and by 'approximately' I mean 'exactly'.

    I think the carp can smell my desperation...
