Adam Towers caught his biggest ever common carp in the form of this 32lb specimen from Denton Reservoir.
The Lincolnshire-based rod baited up with a kilo of Cambridgeshire Carp Baits Goldfish boilies over a clear spot surrounded by thick onion weed at 80 yards range.
After landing two small tench his rod screamed off for a third time and he was left in no doubt that a carp was responsible.
He said: “The fish kept trying to bury itself in the weed but I managed to keep it moving. I was delighted with the fish as there aren’t many commons in the venue.”
