ALL 67lb 14oz, of Two Tone, the UK’s biggest freshwater fish is dead. Two Tone was spotted floating on the surface of Conningbrook Lake in Ashford, Kent.

This is big news in angling:

Anglers said it was only caught once or twice a year and no more than 50 times in its lifetime…. Chris Logsdon, 62, manager of Mid Kent Fisheries, which runs the lake, said: “The fish was wily and difficult to catch.”

Wily – as in only caught twice a year?
