The Fully is fooled at 26lb 2oz

This beautiful scaly mirror gave teenager Max Rippington a new personal best.

The Oxfordshire 16-year-old tackled a local stillwater to bank the 26lb 2oz mirror known as The Fully.

Max, who also banked commons of 21lb 6oz and 18lb 2oz from the tricky venue, said: “It was my best-ever session and the mirror was one of my target fish, so I was buzzing.”

The teenager used GS Crab boilies from Oxford Carp Baits and rigs made from Carper’s Arsenal components.
