New world record Siamese carp banked

A prediction that a special fish was going to come his way proved correct for Keith Williams as he landed a new world record Siamese carp of 134lb 7oz during a holiday to Thailand.

The Surrey based rod made the long journey to the prolific Gillhams Fishing Resort and upon his arrival stated to friends that he could ‘feel it in his bones’ that a specimen of huge proportions would be heading his way.

With very few indications coming in the early stages, it looked as though his dream wouldn’t come true but that all changed when a big fish picked up his double 25mm pellet hookbait.

If verified by the International Game Fish Association it will beat the previous official best of 114lb 10oz.
