    It's the line that says "if it were not for the illegal transfer of fish, redmire would still be the best water in the land" that I find the most unbelievable!

    It's got all the makings of a classic.

    'Dick Walker And The Riddle Of The Unknown 58lb Redmire Carp'

    Maybe it's a red herring and pictures will emerge with a stack of canoes in the background, maybe close to a power station?

    The link supplied dates from 1997 . . . .

    Keith was the angling writer for the Independent for over 20 years and a founder member of the UK Angling Writers Assoc., in addition to being the editor and publisher of Classic Angling Magazine.

    Shortly stated, if it swims then Keith has fished for it all over the planet.

    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. ~
