    Well known fish or not you've got to be impressed with a lump like that. How long before it, or another genuine Brit, tops 60lb I wonder?

    yep, certainly very impressive from whats supposed to be an unbelivably difficult venue.

    It would be great to see an unknown fish take the record..... trouble is there are lots of secret squirrels out there!

    World record is 82+ ...catch it, put it in a tank and transport it by van to the UK then dump it in a small pond and there you go....new British record!

    I seem to recall a common that lived in unfished for splendour in a piece of water located in a yorkshire(?) fun park. This died several years ago at a weight reportedly in excess of 60lbs.

    The pictures of the world record, show it as a genetic freak.
    Like most carp over the 50lb size, they are a very small percentage who have the correct genetics, coupled with an ideal lake and food sources.

    I think 65lb is tops for the UK (Two-tone) unless another fish with equally good genetics comes thru the ranks.

    Phil, you're such a sceptic )

    Rik...spend a bit of time over here watching the un-marked white vans with the english number plates turn up at your favourite venue in the middle of the night and you might feel the same!

    If fish farmers can use infra red heating and high protein food to get Brown trout to over 50 pounds in weight, I dont see why we could not get a 70 pound UK grown Carp. May not be politically correct, but it would be a UK fish....
