River Roker!


Recommended Posts

It took more than ten minutes and two people to heave the 8lb 2oz thornback ray out of the River Fal in Cornwall.

Should've batted it first. Would've been a lot easier to get out.

 

If there's no local roker-bat supplier down that way, Steve, it could be a fantastic opportunity for you.

The fish can grow to 3.3 ft in length and can weigh up to 8.75 lb.

 

I caught a 16lber (in the sea) does that make me a record holder? :P

Eating wild caught fish is good for my health, reduces food miles and keeps me fit trying to catch them........it's my choice to do it, not yours to stop me!

Yes, and that entitles you to order one of Steve's special hand-carved ebony roker-bats, complete with an engraved plate.

"Mary catches ray on holiday from Africa in the River Fal"

 

Well I didn't know you caught thornback rays in Africa, and I certainly didn't know that they went on holiday either - sheesh, you learn something new every day!
