While helping out at Angling Auctions on the 26th March, this year, I came across this little cased gobio gobio, the case measuring 11 inches wide. The gudgeon was set up by J Cooper and Sons. Caught by F W Jefferies in a private pool in Bournebrook near Birmingham on the 15th August 1936.

This goliath weighed 3ozs and sold in the sale from what I can remember at £5,500.00!

Shame, I fancied this one for my book shelf.
