    There may be a Redmire up for sale somewhere but it ain't the legendary carp venue.

    That's about as big as a fish that big gets

    Ok.I stand corrected.
    I just found it odd that googling Redmire for sale threw up nothing and that the official website mentions bookings for 2018 and nothing about it being for sale.
    My mistake.

    That's because it's called Bernithian Court, not Redmire.....

    No one is going to buy it as a fishery, too much land and too expensive to make any return. Unless Rob Hales buys it, nets out all the small fish and stocks some decent size fish in. Big Rig, for example - would be nice for the record to come from there again.
    You're born, you take sh*t. You get out in the world, you take more sh*t. You climb a little higher, you take less sh*t. Till one day you're up in the rarefied atmosphere and you've forgotten what sh*t even looks like. It's just a shame I'm still on the first rung!

    The fish would not have been accepted as a record at that time without the production of the body as evidence. As Walker himself recalled in "No Need To Lie" (1964):

    "...I resolved that, record or no record, that fish should not be killed. Many, many times I had wondered what I should do if ever I caught a record carp; now I had to decide, and kill it I could not."

    That is exactly right. Walker had to make a huge decision and to my mind it was the right one.

    'Ravioli' was just so much bigger than the previous record that it simply had to. be considered and yet Walker, to his eternal credit, just couldn't bring himself to kill such a fabulous fish.

    Scholars have long known that fishing eventually turns men into philosophers.

    Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to buy decent tackle on a philosopher's salary. ~
