quoted from 'Coarse fishing, a step-by-step guide' :

"Eels and Perch have a bone under the gill cover, called the operculum. It can be removed from dead fish and read like a tree trunk, ask a ring is laid down each year, thus giving the age of the fish. Top eel angler John Sidley , once killed a 6-7lb eel to be mounted in a glass case. He had the bone read and discovered that the eel was 68 years old. he vowed never to kill another eel after that."

I had actualy read the same thing some time ago, And had totaly forgotten about it, So is anybody going to work out the weight of the 13Lber, Because as far as i can work it out like this, 68 years divided by 6.5 {Lb} then times by 13 for the poundage = 135.5 yrs old, Now that is fantastic if its right,
