Nick mentioned on carp feed. Com that the fish was originally in a local caravan park lake.

honestly my knowledge of captures from this river is minimal all I know is it is a stunner and id be well happy to have that in my net. I think that any fish caught from a river seems to hold a bit more of my awe as the distances they can travel as well as being able to get into and out of a river on floods just to me means that you don't really know that it is there until you catch it,

after reading this I do see that this fish is known to be in the stretch he fished, but is this any different to fishing a lake with known fish in it?

anyway just my thoughts. still a very stunning fish no matter how you look at it.

My mind was blown, to some extent, when I first heard about the capture and saw the fish. To some extent I agree with you Rivers, this is clearly a much better known fish than the publicity machine initially suggested.

To be fair to Nick, he is clearly not the first to publish pictures of the fish, but he is the first to arrange a film crew be present!

It's a special fish and no doubt hard earned, but hardly merits some of the bum licking cringe worthy comments some people are making. It lives in a river ... I first saw a picture of that fish four years ago

I don't think the capture is being demoted , But neither is it being hailed as mind blowing , I think continental carpers are more likely to laugh at the "mind blowing' statement personally I

There must be some continental Anglers reading this thread and laughing.

U.K. anglers demoting a capture because it is of a known fish?

So itís like Mary, Basil, The Bishop, the Burghfield Common etc.?

I know that someone will talk about their mate having a true unknown big one from a no fishing ressie but letís be real, how many 50ís in the U.K. have never been caught and have been in a water since birth (yes, I know this fish came from Sonning Dinton but it wasnít a stockie)?

I've been fishing for nye on fifty years and never retained a fish other than a couple of minutes in the net. Some places I've fished I have seen people sack fish till it's light and a mate arrives to do the photos even though others have been on the lake that night. Poor angling but that's just my opinion so worth nothing.

I suppose the buffering that can happen from boats as they go past , always a chance with retaining fish on rivers ,
I never sack river fish , but then ,the rivers I fish ,have huge boats that cause mini tsunamis as they go past .not quite the same on the tiddly thames 😀

Stressing about retaining it for some time says it all. Disgusting some of these people in the spotlight, fish should be photographed and returned but for these types publicity takes priority over everything.Remember his spat with des taylor he got him spot on. big ego and nowhere near as good a angler as he thinks.Personally think the guy is a bellend.As for travelling abroad didnt he pack all that big fish chasing in because he couldnt catch one whilst others around him were catching some right lumps.

Bang on, I've also met Nick a couple of times a very long time ago and remember him traveling abroad to places others knew nothing about. Not read any post here slagging him . However is this capture really mind blowing ? It's a known fish all be it a big one but it's been caught several times before. Oh, good angling Nick.

Hmmm..... I remember a thread on here about the Burghfield common a few years ago and he had a right old rant as the captor was "undeserving" in his opinion as he hadn't put the time in to elevate it to the same status as Tel's capture.
