The Manchester rod caught the fish from Kracking Karp Lake at the popular complex.

Venue boss Zyg Gregorek said: “Not only does Ryan come on holiday to Anglers Paradise but this time he came with a friend and they fished one of the day-ticket waters called Kracking Karp.

“The reward was his biggest-ever carp. He was so pleased that he went onto the water to release the fish. I opened a bottle of bubbly, had the first swig and gave the rest to Ryan.”
