Default Flat Fish

And tidal-stretches dont count!
Here is one from two weirs above the tidal stretch of the Wharfe (on trundled lobworm) - A flounder of about 2lb.

I once caught a Flounder in a club match (Malton and Norton) on a gravel pit near Driffield when i was a kid, it was about 1/2lb and i got no photo's as one of the elders trod on it its probably a record for a stillwater Flounder unless anyone knows different

When I was a kid I caught a really little one in a tiny stream called the Swilgate in Tewkesbury. It is a tributary of the Mill Avon, which feeds the Severn. Very exciting!

Caught a proper one off the coast of Scotland too - tasted great!

I had a flounder of 1lb 12oz back in 2005 from the Wharfe. I caught it on a lobworm from an area two weirs above the tidal stretch............this is starting to sound familiar.

Nice to know the little fella has been peacefully swimming about minding his own business for the past few years.

Caught a few from a stillwater in housing estate in Bridgewater, Somerset, years ago. No one I saw ever weighed them so you're safe to claim the record if you want it. I'm not that fussed myself!
