Big Fish


The picture above is the bridge at Nantcarredig over the Towy. I hadn't realised that a record was held for catching the biggest fish in freshwater in the British Isles there. The fish was caught in 1932 by Eric Allen on the River Towy at Nantgaredig and weighed 388lbs. It was a 9 ft Sturgeon.
Talking of Fish I do watch the Apprentice TV Program when its on. I remember a real put down on a super smart contestant. He had described himself as a shark I believe. When interviewed in the final he was told he wasn't a big fish in  small pool in fact he wasn't even a fish. His ego took a real dive (probably deservedly).
