ANGLERS have showed the true Brit never-say-die attitude to the prolonged arctic conditions – by catching in the snow or going out and just having fun!

As deep snow fell across every county of Britain, some anglers found fun in the snow but the trade, tackle shops and fishery owners are bound to be hit hard.

This week’s Angler’s Mail has many angling experiences of the worst snow this early for 40 years with either some remarkable catches or readers just having fishy fun in the back garden.

Catches include Nottingham-based Quest Baits owner Shaun Harrison, who recorded his sixth carp from a snowy water with a lovely 20 lb-plus mirror before the water froze over.

For Shaun’s full catch details and a round-up of all the snowy fun including two great hauls by Duncan Charman plus plenty of other pictures, grab a copy of this week’s Angler’s Mail magazine, out today, Tuesday, December 7.
