Fifth 50lb carp this year... from the same venue!

It’s highly unlikely that any other carp angler in the country can rival the 2015 that Kris Ollington is having.
Staggeringly, this 52lb common is the fifth 50lb-plus fish he has caught from Berkshire’s Wellington Country Park this summer.
The fish, known as the Big Common, came along with a 36lb 10oz mirror in a 15-minute spell at the end of a gruelling four-night session in which the 33-year-old fished five different swims.
“It’s been a once-in-a-lifetime summer, it’s something that is never, ever going to happen again,” he said.
“I started in a swim called Brambles for two nights and ended up fishing five swims in four nights, chasing the fish around the lake. I ended up in a swim called Hole in the Bush and had two in 15 minutes!
“The fish were showing close to an island at about 140yds, which is just out of my range, so I was fishing at about 125yds with single hookbaits. I had the 36, which is known as the Pretty Sutton and is one of the prettiest fish in the lake, then literally as I was putting it back I had the other bite.
“Both fish put up great fights, keeping me on a long line for a long time.”
Kris fished with Mainline Activ-8 boilies on blowback rigs made with Gardner Ultra Skin and Korda Kaptor Kurv hooks.
