Stunning 32lb 8oz linear carp from southern syndicate

Paul Codman hailed this linear as “the best looking carp I have ever landed”, and it’s easier to see why.

The pretty linear tipped the scales at 32lb 8oz during a three-night stay on a southern syndicate water.

He said: “At 32lb 8oz it's my second biggest UK carp and certainly the best looking carp I have ever landed, with plenty of character to boot.

“I did have another one which dropped off not 6ft from the bank, which was gutting. Fortunately the photos of the linear soon put the smile back on my face.”

The fish fell to a hinged stiff rig fished over a bed of boilies on a clear area in 7ft of water.
