Red-nosed Salter's £200 perch
OK he's a politician, and a Labour one at that, but how could you not warm to MP Martin Salter? Not only does he treat the antis with the contempt they deserve, he's also happy to make a fool of himself in aid of a good cause, and promote fishing at the same time - sponsored by the All Party Parliamentary Group to catch a fish on Red Nose Day, he raised £200 for Comic Relief by catching this 2lb 12oz perch (none of that foreign kg nonsense) on a tributary of his local River Kennet near Aldermaston. Could we have some more politicans like him please?!
