JUBILANT Ken Brown picked up his £3,000 cheque last week after being crowned Fox Specimen Cup champion for 2010 after a string of huge perch to 5 lb 14 oz and bream to 17 lb 8 oz from local stillwaters.

As reported, it was the tightest voting ever with Ken scooping the award by a single vote from a panel of four judges from Fox and Angler’s Mail who had to vote for their top five anglers.

Tring, Hertfordshire-based Ken and wife Elaine visited the Fox International HQ in Essex where they were shown all the latest tackle by owner Cliff Fox and director Andy Little.
