Rays fish was the old BRFC record.....the NI fish is the new one, though some say it is not a true roach.

But if it was accepted by the BRFC then surely it is the record, and if Rays fish was surpased what's all this about???:confused::confused::confused:

It's about the question of whether the captor can or cannot withdraw a ratified record from the BRFC list. I think we have established without a shadow of a doubt (with the exception of maybe one person) that the captor cannot withdraw a record.

The old record that all the fuss is about, was not withdrawn, but replaced by a bigger fish caught by Keith Berry.
