At last ... a gold nugget

Post by Matt Flynn » Wed Jun 08, 2011 10:25 pm

Dwarf golden PT at last.

It's taken years, I dunno what to say. Might have to organise drinks.

Had to pixellate the background, hope you all understand.

No, not noodling, I targeted this one with a special PT Trap disguised as a CRAB POT.

Some people may frown at trapping a PT instead of noodling it, but since the croc incident, I've gone off noodling a bit.

Here's the nugget again from another angle ...

Just look how she gleams in the sunlight.....are they whiskers?...or racing stripes!!

The largest dwarf powertail caught was 2.3 meters.

The largest human dwarf was Fernando Belhoef of Argentina. He was 6 foot 2 inches tall.

Thats all
Its not a crisis unless there is blood around.
If there is blood around......well its a police matter...

Had it mounted by A. Dunger & Sons. Brought the place to a standstill when I walked in with it.

All old Arthur could say was: WTF?
