After often evading capture for long periods, the very rare big common from

Etang La Saussaie has slipped up again to English angler John Thorpe. John

set his new personal best from the Beach swim at the 8 acre venue situated in

northern France.



Ian Welsh from Derbyshire has caught the 'Big Common' from St. Johns Lake

on the Richworth Linear Complex weighing 46lb 2oz and sets a new lake record

and complex record common. Ian's new personal best topped a nine fish catch

using Trent Baits liver specials.



News has just reached us that the huge common from Etang La Saussaie has

been banked by Colin Smith at a new common carp world record weight of

100lb 8oz. The world's first 100lb+ common knocks 'Eric's Common' from

Rainbow Lake off the number one spot and looks like it can go even bigger!



Kurt Deproot has landed the mirror known as the 'Briggs Fish' from Rainbow

, the second time the fish has been caught in a week. Fishing from peg

14, the Belgian angler fished a Solar Club Mix and Dairy Cream snowman rig

over a bed of Club Mix boilies to take his biggest ever carp at a huge 82lb.



16 year old Sparsholt College student Rory Mills has banked one of the Suffolk

Water Park
biggies called 'Magical' weighing 35lb. Rory used an Ace Baits pop-

up presented on a chod rig at 70 yards with 20 scattered freebies. The tactics

also accounted for a 20lb 7oz mirror and a mid double fully scaled mirror.



Rainbow Lake regular Tony Kenrick has joined the elite group of anglers that

have landed a common and mirror weighing over 80lb with his capture of the

'Briggs Fish' weighing 84lb. Tony's tough week in Swim 11 all turned round

with this bite, his first of the trip coming on Thursday afternoon.



Big fish angler Martin Pick has set a new PB of 45lb 10oz with 'Willow' from

Wellington Country Park in Berkshire. Martin tempted the big mirror using

Washed Out Pop-ups from DT Baits presented on hinged stiff rigs tied using

Korda end tackle. Martin added other mirrors weighing 34lb 6oz & 27lb 12oz.



A last minute change of venue paid off in style for Kev Hewitt with a 14 fish hit

topped by this stunning 35lb 12oz mirror. With ice forming on the Richworth

Linear Complex
, Kev drove to Yateley Sandhurst Lake and wasted no time in

casting out 2 rods on zig rigs and the 3rd on a chod rig.
