He was the target of many an angler during fishing competitions on the lake. (During competitions, successful fishermen merely weigh the fish and then let them loose in the lake once more).

Chris Logsdon, the manager of Mid Kent Fisheries said “Two Tone will be buried next to the lake on Sunday morning with a plaque marking his grave. I think there may be 20 or 30 people there.”

    Why could n’t the fish be donated to the poor? Unless it was believed the fish had been poisoned I find it difficult to think no one would have benifitted from such a gift.

      Hi Joseph,
      Sometimes people get attached to their pet and they show the same emotions they would for a loved person when their pet dies.
      I remember my mother refusing to eat one of our chickens. She had kept it for more years than any other, and developed such an attachment. She did let us eat it, though.
