Photoprints For 4 million UK Anglers

LONDON, ENGLAND--(CCNMatthews - Mar. 16, 2005) - An estimated 4 million
regular anglers in the UK, making fishing the Countries biggest
participation sport, are being given the opportunity to pursue their
hobby in their living rooms by viewing astonishingly realistic
high-resolution framed colour giant photo-prints of cased specimen fish
which are now available to hang on their walls.

An innovative new Malvern company called "Big Things" has begun
advertising and selling the first two of a series of these framed
prints, a 10lbs5oz barbel as shown, enlarged to the full size
394mmx917mm of the original cased fish, and a similar sized Thames
trout, both obtainable from their website or on Ebay (B.I.N.)

Big Things company owner Derek Baddeley says he got the idea for these
when he visited Henley-on-Thames river and rowing Museum and saw their
large public display of big cased fish caught by the famous angler
A.E.Hobbs more than a century ago.

Mr Baddeley told us "With most cased fish now selling for several
thousand pounds at auction, the only chance most anglers had of seeing
one was in a display or perhaps on a riverside pub wall, but from now on
for the modest price of GBP 31.95 + p&p any keen fisherman can hang a
life-like giant framed colour photo-print of a cased fish on his
wall,and even make a collection of different large specimen fish prints
as we produce and market them over the next few months.
