TV star and comedian Jim Davidson took part in the annual carp match organized by Carp After Combat.
Jim Davidson was at the event held at Kent’s Medway Valley Fisheries, and he was alongside renowned carp anglers like Jerry Hammond, Carp Team England boss Rob Hughes, and former UK record holder Lee Jackson. Lee had a 27 lb 10 0z leather, near to the end of play.
The event raised the impressive tally of over £25,000 in support of Care After Combat.
It’s a charity that life-time carp angler Jim holds dear, that assists ex-servicemen in the prison system, making sure that they stay out when released by supplying mentoring and support.
