Amazing capture of huge specimens pulled off by 20-year-old. A 20-year-old has put his name in the history books as one of the youngest carp anglers ever to have banked a brace of fifties. Nash-backed Jack Brown completed the amazing angling feat during a recent 72hour session at Kevin Nash’s Church Lake in Essex, where he landed two fish for a total of over 103lb - a mirror of 51lb 2oz and a scale-perfect common of 52lb 1oz. Working hard for his incredible catch, Jack moved three times during his visit, catching the big common on the evening of the second day after casting to signs of feeding fish.

This month I’ve been here, there, and everywhere else it seems. If I’m honest it hasn’t been the most successful of months fishing wise, although not without some success at least. The river is starting to look really good now, I’ve only done one night there this month and blanked, but what’s been most encouraging is that I’ve been seeing fish, and one was an absolute clonker! I’ve set myself a target of catching a 20lb+ fish from the stretch this winter, and from what I’ve seen and heard it’s certainly possible. A lot of anglers would smirk at a target weight that low but, to me a river 20 holds as much merit as a lake-caught 30 or even 40 pounder, they’re certainly equally as rare.

The Total Carp team get a look at the anticipated new Kevin Nash DVD. Don’t miss the brand-new DVD from Kevin Nash, The Final Account, in which he chronicles his pursuit of some truly stunning, and gigantic, carp. With just a short window to wage his campaign to catch these fish – he’s got to bank them before they start to spawn - the account begins with the pursuit of The Emporer, a carp that has occupied his mind for several years. It’s a no-holds-barred look at the trials and tribulations that follow Kevin along the way and includes some extremely raw footage of the man himself at various stages in the hunt.
