    I'm not greedy, I'll settle for catching any crucian. It is an incredibly impressive beast though.

    Sweden and Norway both have some very large Crucians . . . .we used to regularly catch specimens well over 3lbs at a small lake on the east side of Oslo.

    it is a shame that Scandinavia is so expensive as the fishing there is excellent.

    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. ~

    that looks freaky! Not sure if it's in a good way, either.

    It's a stonker alright.

    I've got a couple of waters available to me where I'm likely to encounter crucians but big ones are something I've never come across, a 2+ would be good going by my standards.

    There was a very shallow pool which I fished a fair few years back and that was full of 'em, most of which seemed to be around the 2 - 2 1/2lb mark but I heard they were removed for de-silting work.

    What a truly awesome Crucian.
