Russian Bloggers Cast Doubt on Putin's Fishy Tale
President Vladimir Putin's opponents on Monday gleefully sought to prove the Russian strongman had massively exaggerated the weight of a pike he caught on a recent fishing expedition to Siberia.
The Kremlin on Friday had announced that Putin managed to catch a 21 kilogramme (46 pound) pike while on a trip to the region of Tuva, providing television footage and pictures of the president stripped to the waist as he cast his line.
OK click the link and tell me what you think. Is it a 12lb pike or a 46lb pike?
