Carl Milton bagged his first 40 from Strawberry Fields in the shape of the mirror known as Two Tone.
The 48lb 8oz specimen was part of a three-fish catch during a 60-hour session on the Kent venue.
Carl, a 31-year-old physiotherapist from East Sussex, said: “This was my first 40-pounder from the venue having caught 30 other smaller carp from there over the last few years.
“I was over the moon to catch a 40 from Strawberry Fields as it’s not an easy venue. I have been lucky that there are many very good anglers on the water and a very helpful owner who have helped me with various tips.”
The fish took a Nash Monster Squid boilie on a size-eight hook and 10lb line.
