Did you weigh it? :o)
Weirdly I was playing with the ultra light scales for my gudgeon mission this morning, wish I'd taken them with me!
Well done with the "Ruffe-ion", lovely little fish aren't they.
They're great, probably because they are rare. Guess it was about 1½ or 2oz, personal best number 6 of the season... A cracking season so far...
Are they so rare as to be only found in a handful of venues or is it there are so few of them in most places that actually catching one is a long shot? Or possibly both?What's the current record?
Only a few venues and pretty thin on the ground, I've only seen two, both on the Thames - I'm sure someone will know where they are a bit more prolific.Record: 5oz 4drm - 1980 - R J Jenkins
