    Ok I stand corrected - For those that are interested here`s a piece from an old interview with Dick about the capture. It includes the full story of how it was weighed the 2nd time by the offical from the `weights and measures department` at 44lb. The first weiging was made by Dick and Pete Thomas using 2 x 32lb spring balances tied together (biggest they had at the time) then adding the results of the 2 to get an approx figure of 41.5 lb`s thus telling them it was deff over the old record of 31lb`s.


    Dick Walker Interview

    It`s about a 6M download but well worth it for those of us interested in the history of our sport. It also includes Dick`s views on Chris Yates record fish.

    Enjoy.

    Cor fancy not weighing it........what a joey.

    Just think of all the free gear and bait he could have bagged if he'd sent the Photo's off to Carp Talk.
