FOR many years the bream record was not on the radar of the coun­try’s spec­i­men hunters, but the man who be­gan to en­gage their in­ter­est was Alis­tair Ni­chol­son.

In the space of a cou­ple of weeks in 1984, Ni­chol­son showed what was pos­si­ble by bank­ing a se­ries of record-shat­ter­ing bream from what was then a lit­tle-known wa­ter called Queen­ford La­goon. It cul­mi­nated in a 15lb 6oz gi­ant, and the cap­ture shook the spec­i­men fish­ing world.
