Second-largest Irish carp is caught at 37lb

The second-largest carp in Ireland has been banked at 37lb.

Gerry Heapes slid the net under the specimen, known as The Other Mirror, during a three-day session at Lyreen Carp Lake in Maynooth, County Kildare.

The Dublin angler said: “This fish is one of the most sought-after carp in the lake due to the fact she goes very long periods of time without visiting the bank. She is no mug fish, and this made it all the more sweet.”

The 44-year-old hairstylist presented Sticky Krill boilies in the margins on multi rigs.
