Tina W said...

Is that including the bones in Elwyn's finger that he stuck in the carps mouth?

maureen said...

riff raff you are more than welcome, have as many goes as you like, but if you win and want your bottle of wine, you will have to say who you are.

Peter Pike said...

5.lbs 2ozs

Stu said...

4LB 2OZ

Clifford Evans said...

I would say 2lb 7oz
I did'nt know Elwyn was an angler
I reckon Elwyns hands are small making the fish look bigger!!

maureen said...

clifford next time you see elwyn shake his hand, they are like shovels, so have another go, no one has the correct weight yet,there were 6 of us bedlington folk staying at a lovely site in raglan,5 of us fish we had a great time, after the welsh show we went straight there,did you enjoy your day at the show it was great to see you and your bedlington.

Stu said...

You never got the submarine then?

Isaac Walton said...

Elwyn was stuffing lead weights down its throat with his finger to confuse us

Tina W said...

No we never got the sub,Mr Lewis the owner kept telling us to put the fish we caught in his other pond but we tried our best to ignore him when it was a decent sized fish,we had a good week and a good few laughs!!

maureen said...

stu we are leaving the submarine for next time, there will be more of us, so a better challenge, i bet you will dive in to get it,we will try a new bait, elwyns has been to the book shop and reading about the mind of the carp,

dave said...

captain hook says 5.pound.

Tina W said...

Mo was in farm foods today and they have a big roll of garlic sausage that must be 10ins long for 99p do you want one for October?

Savaloy said...

I dont want to start to think what Maureen would do with a 10 inch long garlic sausage.

maureen said...

yes please tina i could do with some more bait,they did not like palony,got to beat stu,,,

elwyn said...

i have been reading up on carp, and the submarine could be a grass carp,and needs a special bait called a pop up boily peach flavour.

Stu said...

Bu**er,I've only got strawberry ones.

enid said...

I guess 3lb.13oz.

Tina W said...

We have a load of different flavoured pop ups Elwyn-will be using them at Brailles.

maureen said...

i bet you hav'nt got my one .

paul said...

it has to be 4. 11 oz

Tina W said...

Which one is that Maureen?

Polly/Paula said...

Ha! you can't fool me, it's that rubber singing fish off the wall! - weighs about 4oz!

maureen said...

no its a real fish, promise,

Anonymous said...

Cant believe Elwyn caught it,does'nt he usually sleep whilst fishing. 4LB 12OZ is my guess.
LB.

Tina W said...

Elwyn had a very rude awakening when he was fishing-two of my dogs escaped and came to where we were fishing thanks to Mo we caught Colin straight away but Maisie saw the ducks sunning on the grassy bank and took off after them causing mayhem beside Elwyn-poor chap nearly ended up in the water with fright!!

maureen said...

yes that was a hoot, when the escaped we just dropped our poles,rescued the dogs from jumping in the pond after the ducks, gave elwyn a whisky for the shock,then took the dogs back to the caravan made the garden safe, which took 30 mins, went back to the pond to see were we had dropped our poles,what a shock tina's pole had a carp hooked,it was so funny cos we had sat there for 2 hours without a bite, we dont know how long it was on there,but it swam away with no problems.

maureen said...

no one has the correct weight yet,close but not spot on.

Mr Crabtree said...

3lb 11 oz

Lesley Caines said...

3lbs 14ozs

Terry Trout said...

It is 2lb 2ozs-I hope.

Taffy Tightwad said...

I bet Maureen paid a pound or less for the jumper.

Tina W said...

Maureen certainly get's some good bargains-at Builth she got me a "welsh wool" traveling rug for 50p-not content with looking at the goods for sale she invites herself into the staff only sorting area and got herself a sun parasol that a chap wanted to buy off her -he was miffed when he found out it was for dogs as he felt that a human was more important!! Mo stuck to her guns and wouldn't sell.

Stu said...

Don't mention the £15 wax coat which Chris nicked from under my nose after giving me a hangover the night before or I'll burst into tears.

Anonymous said...

Lets try 4LB 8OZ.
LB

Mark said...

Nice coat in the charity shop at Bulith. Burberry, tried it on but did not fit, needed to be for the larger type of guy!!
Was however very highly priced at a tenner, bet I could have negotiated that one down.








LOL

MAUREEN said...

was it the same coat that i tried on, i tried always to make it fit,but no luck,it was so funny when stu got up too late and missed the coat,he called chris all sorts of names. last day for the fish,CLOSE BUT NOT THERE YET.

Big Rod said...

3lb 7oz

Viv said...

It would be much easier if it had batter on it, but I'll guess 9lb 3 and 1/2 oz (no idea what that is in kilos and all that foreign stuff - they hadn't invented metric when I was at school)Whatever it is, it's a bit bigger than my puppies!

maureen said...

sorry viv, a good bit lower, some are close, and cut off time is saturday at 12 midday.

jim said...

2lb 4 3/4 oz

elwyn said...

the correct weight was 4lb 9 ozs

the closest where L.B. OTHERWISE KNOWN AS LESLEY BUTLER her weight was 4lb 8 ozs and FISHERMANS FRIEND his weight was 4lb 10ozs.

we will give FISHERMANS FRIEND 24 HOURS TO OWN UP,if he doesn't come clean,the bottle of wine will go to LESLEY BUTLER.

Mark said...

Yes, but how many bones?

maureen said...
