Third forty in three months

After spotting a couple of big carp cruising along the margins of a southern stillwater, Jack Price managed to catch this stunning 40lb 7oz mirror off the surface.

Before casting out his trimmed-down pop-up hookbait he catapulted out a handful of Chum Mixers and it wasn’t long before the fish were confidently slurping them down.

He said: “When I spotted the fish I quickly sprinted to my car and grabbed my floater rod. This is my third forty in the last three months and my second off the surface.”
