Briton on holiday in Thailand catches 10 stone carp using a piece of bread

Recommended Posts

What a score! Catch and release? I myself don't care for the taste of carp as they are bottom feeders

but have been told that if cooked correctly is pretty tasty.

My wife tried to tell the same thing, when she cooked it, NOPE, tasted like mud...

Fish should go immediately into ice slurry after you catched it.

Muddy taste comes from the histamine in the fish. As the body temperature rises through stress, the histamine levels will also get higher, and that's why you will get a muddy taste.

Cooling your fish immediately gives a better distribution of blood levels in parts you won't eat.

For me carp flesh is on it's best around 1 kg : less fat.

And euh, next time don't blame the missus.

I think I woke up next to that around 15 years ago.

If it was in Glasgow, then me too!

Yes it is strange how people,particularly the Brits, seem to be averse to metrication. Shopping in a grocers in England is a laugh, where were these people educated, this is basic stuff after all. The youngsters may be wizzes on their iPhones etc, but regrettably their awareness about everyday matters is sadly lacking. I forgive the oldies, but only just.

Absolute nonsense.

I left the UK ten years ago and it was then well versed in using the metric and decimal systems.

Being an 'oldie' as you put it, also means that I don't need to reach for the electronic calculator if I need to multiply by twelve, or divide by six for that matter.

Handy when dining out.

So how much do these fish weigh in real terms, ie Kg.

What is a stone apart from something you throw at dogs?

16 ounces in a lb (pound)......14 lbs (pounds) in a stone

I understand where you are coming from.....it's an age thing

I'll tell you in exchange for you telling me how many kiliograms there are to a mile.tongue.png

A stone is 14 lbs, (around 6,36 kgs), and an amazing coincidence that there are exactly the same number of kilograms to a mile as there are centimetres to a ferkin :)

Stone (not of the Rolling category): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stone_%28unit%29

Pound (not the currency): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pound_%28mass%29

Can English and Irish people use proper modern measurements?! The Imperial measurements were abolished 30 yrs ago, it's in your link above: "With the advent of metrication from the mid-19th century on, it was superseded by the kilogram. It remained in limited use for trade in the United Kingdom and in Ireland until prohibited by the Weights and Measures Act of 1985"

I also agree that fishing in a fishing pond is cheating, wild fish are harder to caught and much stronger.

I'm neither English nor Irish, but converting those measurements is no big deal in this day and age, right? http://www.thaivisa.com/forum/topic/754035-briton-on-holiday-in-thailand-catches-10-stone-carp-using-a-piece-of-bread/page-2#entry8286494

Well they say we were togo metric, but it's just not caught on in everyday use. The death knell for the whole process was when the politicians instead of saying that it was their decision to change over, they instead blamed it on the EEC and that was that, It then became a diktat by a bunch of foreigners, so no way in hell was the process going to go any further from that point on. Hence the mix - metric in work / goods (mostly notable exceptions are MPG for fuel efficiency (even though petrol sold in litres for decades) and screen width) but imperial else where i.e. road signs, speedometers, markets, every day conversation etc
