    Indeed!

    Dedication and effort; imagine sitting out for a week in freezing temperatures for one bite?

    Mind you, if that bite turns up to be that Carp, then; well worth the effort.

    Well done Martin.

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

    He's sat it out for more than a week lol!

    Cracking stuff though Lockey
    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!

    Wowee! that is one big carp and a just reward for such dedication. I had a look at the link for Rainbow Lake and under the heading "Other species" it says Pikes, Bass, Tenches and - Poles - what the eck are Poles?

    Three possibilities spring to mind Graham:

    1) A long fishing rod thingie without a reel, or


    2) An Eastern European person who may, or may not, consume English freshwater fish caught in suspicious circumstances . . . .


    3) A Perch, but only if considering the old Imperial measurement system where; a Rod, Perch or a Pole was equivalent to about 16.5 feet or 5.5 yards.
    (now, that was a clever one . . . . )

    How times have changed. What a splash a near 100lb carp would have made in the angling world 25 years ago. Today, just a few comments on FM is all it warrants. Hell of a fish though and I'd love to catch it - but in June, on a sunny day with a glass of wine and some local cheese and baguettes perhaps...

    I think I'm getting old

    Nah, I just discounted them as being 'too easy' - a bit like winding up old Ron . . . . way too easy!
