British record Carp – How things have moved on.

Albert Buckleys Record Mirror

Since posting a picture of Albert Buckley’s record carp from Mapperley Reservoir on my Facebook page I have spent a fair bit of time thinking about this – particularly the comments regarding the fish being killed.

I don’t think a lot of the younger anglers realise how relatively new the situation of returning big fish is. I guess most would be surprised if I pointed out that the first record carp to be returned alive to the water here in the U.K. was Chris Yates 51lb 8oz fish in 1980 (that wasn’t accepted as a record for some time as it had been returned). Not long ago is it?
