Volume 22 Issue 4 January 2019

The first Club outing for 2019 was the Carpathon at Lake Burley Griffin. Numbers were well up on previous years, with almost 20 Facebook friends of the Club joining us on the day. While there weren't great numbers of carp caught, they were all around the 60cm mark and put up a great fight. The winning team was a group of visitors (the Willey, Connors and Portelli team) with 9 carp. It was a great day, with the CFC ladies flying the flag for us – Karen Malam took out the ladies section with a 59cm carp and Maharlia Borman took out the junior girls section with a 61cm carp. A big thanks to all that came – I'm already looking forward to next year's Carpathon.
