This just in from Sky News:
A fish nick named “Two Tone” believed to be Britain’s biggest native fresh water fish, , was found dead and floating in Conningbrook Lake, Ashford, Kent. Two Tone was thought to be over 40years old and weighed over 30kg(67lb 14oz).
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.”
