An event well worth carping about

More than 350 fishing enthusiasts took to Kings Billabong on Sunday for Catch a Carp Day.

The event was a roaring success with Nagiloc Fishing Club president Braeden Lampard overwhelmed with the large number of entrants.

“When I turned up we already had 40 people waiting for us,” he said.

“By 10am, we had more than 350 registrations and 30 carp caught – it’s great to see so many people supporting us, it’s amazing.
