Two 70lb carp in under 12 hours

There aren’t many people in the world who can claim to have caught two 70lb carp in under 12 hours, but Wayne Cooper is one of them.

The British angler, who now lives in France, was fishing at Rainbow Lake in his adopted country when he snared a 72lb common and the former world record carp, the Ken Dodd Fish, at 74lb 2oz on the same day.

Both fish fell to Solar’s Chinese Take-Away boilies.
