"Size doesn't matter ..."
Members of the Grand Union Gobio Gobio Society (GUGGS) are dedicated to the pursuit and capture of canal gudgeon - you could say we're ga-ga about gobbies. Formed in June 2009, our ultimate aim is for one of our number to catch a specimen to break the UK gudgeon record (currently 140g / 5oz) but we're not holding our breath on that one, and generally we're happy to catch them of any size.
Any gudgeon of 30g or more is a specimen fish and may be given a name. For specimens caught in 2023 the chosen name must begin with the letter U.
