Chidgey nets Anglers Paradise record

Julian Chidgey has every reason to look extremely happy with himself after netting the first carp over 40lb that the popular Anglers Paradise complex has ever produced.

The 41lb 14oz mirror was taken by the local specialist just a few seconds after he lowered a freelined pellet among a group of fish that he spotted in a weedy margin of the Devon venue’s Kracking Carp Lake.

Julian, who runs tutorials at the complex, beat the fish with the help of 12lb line, a 15lb hooklength and a size 8 Fox SSSP hook.
