KERRY Walker’s 2001 Baw­burgh bream of 18lb 8oz raised the bar by such a mar­gin it posed the ques­tion of just how big could the species could grow.

The gi­ant eclipsed the then record of 16lb 12oz, and the catch served as a cat­a­lyst for many spec­i­men an­glers to start tar­get­ing big bream. It fell to a maize hook­bait.
