Well, I have whitnessed a fish that was weighed at 30lb 2 oz from above Sniterby lock on the river Ancholm, and yes, the one I caught was about 7-8 inches longer and and much broader too.

However, to your suggestion of looking for another boat to weigh the fish, I strongly believe that putting her back in the water as soon as possible was the right thing to do, especially considering how long it had taken me to remove the other angler's hooks.  It certainly was a fish of a lifetime, however, despite the fact that I was kicking myself for not having any scales, if the fish was to have died it would  (for me) have  removed every ounce of pleasure out of catching it..

I love fishing, but I would rather not catch a fish and know it lived than allow it to die purely for the sake of knowing its weight.  The fish has to come first in my view.

Of course, I'm sure you're not suggesting that it's better to know a fish's weight than to let it live.

Cheers,
Craig.
