Very unusual modern case with Perspex front-a huge gurnard. With sea fish rarely set up will you see another? Very professionally set fish almost perfect.

Chub Chub by unknown taxidermist in a bow fronted, gilt lined case 25" by 13" by 5 1/2". Hand written label stating "Caught by S Greenwood River Ouse St Ives October 16th 1936 Weight 4lb 6oz". Being an honest fisherman I'd have to say that the scales should have been checked as this fish is realistically no more than 3 lbs in weight tops but a nice case all the same.

Huge pike set in an all glass display case, very unusual and effective. Specific details on typed label as shown in the photographs-very familiar details for some of a certain age! Label states- " PIKE Taken from Calf Heath Reservoir Staffs by A.C. Powis using a 7ft 'Juno' casting rod by Martinez & Bird and a floating plug to 8.8lb 'Platil' Line. Weight 27 1/2lb. Length 42 ins, Girth 19ins. 19th Sept 1957".

Chub Roach by unknown taxidermist in a bow fronted, gilt lined case 20" by 12" by 5 1/2". Hand written label stating "Roach caught by J Lawson River Thet Nov 1st 1931 1lb 3oz". Again, as with the chub I'd say the scales may have been a tad optimistic.....
