Huge carp caught in winter league practice match

This weekend’s Angling Times Winter League Final on Milton Keynes AA’s stillwaters looks set to be interesting after an angler won a practise match with 195lb, consisting of just 13 carp!

Richard Taylor took fish to an estimated 23lb from peg 6 on Furzton Lake, casting a Method feeder to the island.

“I’ve read a few articles on the web which say I caught three carp around 30lb each. I don’t know where these stories came from because only one fish bottomed the 20lb scales, there were six of us present and we all agreed it was about 23lb,” said Richard.
