Angler banks monster near 60lb UK mirror on Red Amo, during dream carp fishing session.
Could this be one of the best carp fishing sessions ever?
Carper Gareth Hughes enjoyed the trip of a lifetime after setting a new personal best and banking an amazing haul of back-up fish during a three day trip on a Cambridgeshire stillwater.
The Bedford based man was fishing on the renowned Grenville Lake where he banked fish of 40lb 8oz, 38lb 11oz and 34lb before hitting the jackpot with his first UK fifty a whopping 58lb 12oz specimen!
The monster fish is the same fish which graced Paul Bennett’s net earlier in the year at a venue record weight of 59lb 1oz.
The UK Forces angler said: “I knew it was big when as soon as I hooked it as it surfaced in the sunlight around 90 yards out. Then when it dived back down it felt like bringing in a car bonnett it was an incredible fight and when it got near and I saw the size of the mouth and its huge shoulders, I started to shake. I thought I had a new PB when I banked the 40lb 8oz fish the day before but when this one spun the scales round I just couldnt believe it.”
