Mirror carp 'Big Plated' hits bank at 47lb 3oz

One of the most coveted day-ticket carp in the country has been banked at 47lb 3oz.
Paul Westall slid his net under the mirror known as the Big Plated at St John’s Lake on the Linear Fisheries complex in Oxfordshire last week.
At the time of going to press, the 29-year-old from nearby Wantage was still fishing and, according to Linear general manager Chris Blunt, had caught a number of
other fish.
The Big Plated is the largest mirror in the 18-acre former gravel pit and was caught by Korda boss Danny Fairbrass during filming of his company’s Underwater DVD series
