Sammie Perkins storms Makins practice match with massive winter haul. After a four year leave of absence, Shimano and Dynamite Baits backed ace Sammie Perkins has returned to Makins Fishery in style, bagging a winning 97lb 12oz net of carp. The 22 year old England international took the haul from peg 15 on Snake Pool – one of the few pegs on the complex that she has never drawn before. Along with her dad, Mark Perkins, and uncle, Rob Perkins, Sammie was regarded as one of the anglers to beat at the Midlands commercial – and even had an ‘Embryo Club’ of celebrity anglers that she had beaten! After joining the England Ladies team, Sammie decided that she needed to broaden her horizons, focussing more on natural venues, and also trying here hand at big carp fishing –meaning she hadn’t visited the venue for the past four years.

It’s a number that could save your life. To many people, dialling 999 is the first thing that comes to mind when faced with an emergency or crisis.

This has several advantages over the standard 999 number, in that it can be recognised in 70 Countries worldwide – and can often connect to an operator even when there is no signal on your network.

A survey, examining how many calories various activities burn, found that angling burns up to 490 calories when fishing in waders – but even more passive fishing from the bank while sat in a stationary position burns 245 calories. This makes even the most relaxed forms of angling as healthy as walking the dog, windsurfing, light canoeing and volleyball.

The question has even split opinion among the country’s star anglers, with some agreeing with Alex and arguing that no method should be regarded as more skilful than another, and others backing Tom Scholey’s case - and naming what they consider to be the most skilful discipline.
