TWO intrepid Brits are back in Blighty after a dream fishing trip of a lifetime produced Amazon Rainforest fish way over the current world record – although neither will be able to claim a world best.
Guildford angler Laurence Hanger landed a monster freshwater wolf fish that banged the scales around to 54lb from previously un-fished waters in the Amerindian territory of Guyana in South America.
That is no less than TWENTY ONE POUNDS bigger than the current IGFA all tackle world record for the species, also known as Giant Trahira. However, he won’t be able to make a claim because pre-historic looking brute was weighed on a boat before being returned.
Two fish of world record proportions for Brits abroad
