Jimmy Bullard, angling superstar

Jimmy_bullard_2 Jimmy Bullard, who is currently recovering from a season-ending knee injury, is gaining quite a reputation as a top-flight match angler. Angling Times reports that the Fulham midfielder recently won a carp competition at Gold Valley Lakes (a fishing venue near Aldershot) using the innovative 'pva bag method'. Fishing tiny walnut-sized bags filled with a mixture of pellets, and hair-rigged pellets on the hook, Bullard tempted carp to just under double figures for his match-winning 87lb 6oz net. Here's a pic of the Bull with one of his scaly victims (Jimmy's the one with the curly hair).

At this stage, I'm obliged to make a joke about Fulham being Premiership minnows, but I'll resist the urge… oops, too late.
