Specialist-Tackle let us know that Tom Felton will be kicking off the St. Lawrence International Junior Carp Tournament in New York in August – last year, he managed to catch a 37 pound fish there.

Also, Mollie found an article from the team behind the British programme Tight Lines where one of their producers went fishing with Tom.

Harry Potter mania had more or less passed me by until Andy Storey, the Tight Lines producer, called me to ask if I could go fishing with Tom Felton, the actor who played Draco Malfoy, one of HP’s enemies in The Philosopher’s Stone. Far from being a baddie, as he is portrayed in the film, it turns out that young Tom is really a good guy – he’s a fanatical fisherman! A carp angler, in fact. And a very good one, too.
