an 18lb 2oz carp may not be a particularly big fish by the usual
standards of top Milton Keynes venue, Furzton Lake, this monster carp
was pretty remarkable - as pleasure angler Rob Wilkinson landed it on a
size 16 hook and a light waggler rod!
The battle took more than 30 minutes, before Rob Nursaw (who took the picture) could finally net the fish.
for 74 year old Rob, who suffers with a chronic bad back, he is still
paying the consequences of his exertions with severe back pain, but as
his smile shows, he feels it was well worth it!
