Stunning scaly 30lb carp on zig rig

This scaly beauty fell to zig-rigged foam on the edge of a weed bed.

Tackle-shop worker Joe Atkinson snared the 34lb 7oz mirror during a 48-hour session on the Bayeswater Syndicate in Essex.

He said: “This was the first time I had managed to get back over there in two months, so to get back and get one was a right result, and what a stunning carp to have!”

The 23-year-old presented his zig on a size 10 ESP Big T hook and 10lb Drennan Double Strength at 6ft in 9ft of water.
