Is this the best-looking carp of the year? It’s certainly a contender!
The beautifully scaled 29lb 9oz specimen was caught by Ben Samari from a Nottinghamshire venue.
The Mainline-backed angler, who has kindly given us permission to show these cracking photos, had been pre-baiting Girton A, an 88-acre syndicate lake near Newark, and fooled the mirror on a Milky Toffee pop-up.
There are three lakes on the Girton complex, run by Classic Carp Limited.
