More Big Fish

I couldn't resist posting this item from

The 18-stone fish that was off the scales
Few anglers complain that their catch is too large - but the man who landed this monster has reason to feel a little disappointed.
The fish was so big that his scales were unable to weigh it, denying him a certain world record.

The Siamese giant carp slapped the men with its tail as they struggled to hold it. It was caught by Thai fisherman Kik (right).

The Thai fisherman, known as Kik was left to estimate that the Siamese giant carp weighed 256lb - 36lb more than his scales could bear.
The world record for any member of the carp family, which includes goldfish, is 88lb.
Kik's boss, Jean-Francois Helias, who runs fishing tours in Thailand, said: "He hooked the catch of a lifetime that some anglers would sell their soul to the devil for. "It is the biggest carp ever caught on rod and line and kept slapping people with its tail."
