"...thought to have been around 45 years old" "15lb in 1986". - Todays Carp Talk.

Didn't grow much in it's first 21 years then. Was Wood Pool heavily stocked or of poor quality? Who'd of thought it would have gone on to such heady heights back then?!

Then it put on nearly 20lb in the next 7 years.

It certainly grew better in the 'Brook!

if you can get a copy read jackos book just for the record , cracking book mate and there is a great chapter on the lake called oh so naturelle by ian brown , tells you all about the natural food and how rich a water conningbrook is .

50kg's of boilies and pellets a day is natural food for a fish?

them big fish aren't natural in ANY sense of the word

in the same way a 50 stone man isn't natural fed on KFC and mcdonalds

you've romanticised something that is infact an abomination

oops lol

Compensatory growth; stunned fish (and other animals; birds and mammals) are well know the have elevated growth rates once conditions (low nutrition for one reason or another) improve.

Recipie for a record carp: freak genetics to get that big, transferred to a low stock highly productive environment after a period in an over stocked hole.

Two-Tone and Mary both cases in point.

Same with the sandhurst fish, remember seeing the pics of em after they were taken from the sandpit, looked starved
