Biggest carp ever... to a woman

Not many anglers can lay claim to catching a 100lb carp but English lady Annabel Worthington can after banking a massive 132lb Giant Siamese carp, the world’s largest of the species ever caught by a female angler.

Fishing on 15th January in Bungsamran Lake in Bangkok, Thailand, Annabel warmed up for the huge fish by first catching a few 40lb Mekong cats before she had the only run of the day on the carp rods from a heavily baited marginal swim.

Guide Eddy Mounce of said that Giant Siamese carp try a number of dirty tricks to shed the hook and this was no exception as there were several nervous moments involving a heavy marginal snag but the fish was eventually beaten and unhooked in the water.
