Jethro Buter cradles this 46lb-plus mirror in front of one of the most beautiful backdrops in European carp angling.
The Church on the Island at Slovenia’s Lake Bled provides a majestic background for this catch shot.
The fish, weighed metrically at 21.1kg, was one of five fish in three days for Dutch angler Jethro.
The 29-year-old said: “This awesome 21.1 kg fish was caught from Lake Bled in Slovenia.
“On a three-day session I managed to catch five fish. It’s a hard lake and not much caught during the weekend.”
The 360-acre venue is a popular tourist destination in the Julian Alps area of northwestern Slovenia. It contains large carp and was brought to prominence among UK anglers by the the second Euro Banx film.
