Martin Bowler lands new personal best mirror carp at 43lb 2oz

Big fish specialist Martin Bowler has just banked his largest ever carp - a superb 43lb 2oz mirror carp banked last week during a torrential storm.

He caught the fish using an ESP chod rig coupled with 15mm boilies presented over a couple of kilos of free offerings.

Confidence was high in both the bait and the rigs as Martin had already taken a handful of 20lb carp earlier in the session.

After drying and making himself comfortable following fishing through heavy downpours the alarm sung into life once more.

The rest, as they say, is history...
