“In a match the other week on Molands Lake at Packington Somers Fishery I landed this massive F1 carp, weighing
11lb 2oz! I was fishing a 6mm expander pellet on relatively light gear, with a 0.13mm hooklength.
“After hooking and playing the fish for a while, I was shocked to see the size of it when it surfaced. Fishery manager John Burchell was there to witness the weighing and verify it was indeed an F1.”
