Mathis Korn is an extremely accomplished carp angler for his age and has caught both commons and mirrors in excess of 55lb from his home country of Germany and even bigger fish in France. He prefers to fish larger, unknown expanses of water searching for the beasts that would otherwise go unnoticed.

Favourite bivvy meal: Always fresh healthy food – Thai food is simple and easy too cook on the bank
