A 70-year old pensioner has landed the largest fish ever caught by rod and line in the waters of the British Isles. Joe Waldis reeled in a 1,056lb shark and rather than immediately throwing this magnificent and endangered creature back into the sea, the silly old fool towed it back to land for a weigh-in. The shark in question was a mature specimen and likely to have been a breeding female so to see it dead and strung up like a sock with Waldis and his ego posing next to it is sickening.
Sharks are in serious decline and there was absolutely no need for Waldis to kill it by bringing it ashore for weighing when a tape measure and photograph would have been more than sufficient. This stupid idiot should employ common sense and show a little humility and respect next time he goes fishing.
