excactly mate John Mould is a multi millionaire ....with a million pound plus steam engine collection perhaps he could sell a couple to pay for his fence

Buying steam engineers by the sounds of it

Got to ask the same old question if that's the case - what have they been doing for the last 12-14 years???????

Heres a thought, how about putting a bounty on its head. The next 4 captures if by a sponsored angler should pay £25,000 to the fishery towards the fence. The sponsor companies will al be profiting from the captures in pictures and caught on such as such, on this rig or line! So let them pay for it

Whatever we think about the initiative, it's probably the finest carp in the country imo.

It's got everything, size, looks, history.... the lot.

It's also a 60 at the right time of year.

Itís just a 50 common. Apart from the fact of how challenging the place is to fish. Thereís plenty of 50 commons out there. Is it even the biggest one in the country? I donít get all the fuss personally.

Obviously I donít want it ottered. But I donít want any fish ottered to be honest. They all mean something to someone.

Cant believe we are still debating it. Surely one of the big tackle companies in the UK who are doing so much for the good and future of carpfishing would have stepped in and helped them out since this is one of the finest fish in the country

Exactly. As soon as they have the big'un, they'll be off on their toes to try and catch the latest 'must catch'. Pretty machiavellian stuff.

If you see these types floating around your pool, keep your lips sealed and don't tell um a single thing. You want these types around as much as you want cancer. "Oh, the big'un mate?' yeah, saw it in the edge a few weeks ago dead" seeeeee yaaaaah. Tutt-tarr.

£130,000 A nice long term job for a company in these unique covid-19 times.
Protecting his future asset/s

Realistically all the people trying to raise these superstar funds how many are in it for the long term?

By that I mean, once current Burghfield angler X has caught that Big common they wonít be sitting it out to see the fence completed, will they....

I thought Iíd pull Greg up about costings etc. Apparently the owners are contributing most of the money and the total cost will be 130k plus
