Thread: Record fish....

  1. #1

    Default Record fish....

    Another thread got me thinking........

    IMO it is the fish that is the part that matters for record purposes, the angler has something that is special to him or her but it the fish that should be recorded to the best of our abilities.

    I got to thinking about how records are caught, either by design, the unexpected or just sheer accident.

    from an anglers point of view what is the most meritous record?

    To me it still has to be Clarrisa and that man again.

    Thoughts please?

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

    Each "new" record fish that turns up out of the blue is the best for me almost by definition, regardless of species.

    Slightly off thread but. If you rest your case there, why do we hold the captors of record fish in such high esteem?

    Your not off thread, you are bang on............i dont.

    Anglers earn respect by far more complex ways than catching record fish

    Yes it is sad. Rods and reels are sold off of the backs of those names too. Anglers read about a record fish. the papers always say what rod, line, hook etc etc. I always know when something special has been caught because my local tackle shop rings me up to ask " has some specimen been caught on a so and so hook" (he's a match angler) He's had 30 guys walk into the shop over the morning asking for some obscure pattern that have never been asked for before. Now that is sad.
    Fish records are great, they show what is possible. They also give 'specimen hunters' a goal to aim at.
