This is the first fully scaled mirror from the famous Frimley complex to go over 40lb.
The beautiful 40lb 14oz specimen fell to Alisdair Stevens on Pit Three at the Surrey venue after he decided against targeting predators.
“I was going to go pike fishing,” said the 44-year-old from Farnborough, “but the weather looked good for carp fishing – extremely windy and warm.
“So I left the pike rods at home and banked a new Frimley fully scaled record!”
The fish, which was a new personal best for Alisdair, took a Mainline Cell bottom bait on a Fox Coretex Matt hooklink and size 8 Gardner Mugga hook.
