Angling Times (UK) - - SOUTH -

EV­ERAL months af­ter catch­ing ‘The Par­rot’ at 68lb 1oz, Dean Fletcher has fi­nally had his record carp rat­i­fied (see pages 4 and 5).

Dean had to wait five long months be­fore re­ceiv­ing his cer­tifi­cate, a pe­riod of time he calls ‘ab­so­lute rub­bish’. I agree with him.

The fish has been caught three times since Dean banked it, and what if it had been larger than when he claimed his record? Would he ever have been the record-holder?

Makes a bit of mock­ery of the process, doesn’t it?
