Holiday carping season is in full swing and one angler to take full advantage of a French trip was Dean Kennedy who banked this 79lb 8oz lump.
Dean’s incredible haul at Domaine de Ribière also included six forties, a sixty and a host of others.
He said: “It all came together on the last day as I landed fish of 31lb, 27lb and an amazing 62-pounder, which I was more than happy with. I was still buzzing from that capture when my other rod ripped off not 5 minutes later and I caught the 79-pounder known as Julie.”
All the fish fell to Sticky Krill boilies on snowman rigs.
