Current British Record holder Oz Holness has realised his dream of catching the

stunning 'Burghfield Common' weighing 55lb 4oz. The elusive common tested Oz's

reserve to the limit and evaded him in the 96 acre Burghfield Lake for three and

a half years until he finally got his hands on his obsession.



One of the largest carp in the UK has been banked by Hinders fieldtester Brian

Humphries. Brian banked 'The Parrot' weighing 59lb 14oz from Cranwells Lake on

the Wasing Estate in Berkshire. Amazingly, Brian added a stunning common carp

weighing 40lb 8oz to take his 2 fish total over the magical 100lb barrier.



Venue regular Paul Cross has just returned from the awesome Les Teillatts in

France with this session being topped with 2 x 50's within 5 minutes of each

other. Paul used Steve Renyard's Pro boilies fished to a clay spot at 60 yards

and added 5 other carp to 45lb 2oz along with a bonus catfish weighing 80lb+.



The Richworth Linear Manor Farm Lake A-Team have got their heads down

based on recent captures. Using Mainline Cell boilies, Richard Shenton smashed

his PB with 'Spike' weighing 41lb. This was followed up by Malcom Brice when

he set a new PB with the 'Birthmark Linear' weighing 40lb 4oz.



During his recent trip to the birthplace of carp fishing, Redmire Pool, Stuart Harris

caught 9 carp using vintage tackle. The best fish of the week, and indeed the

year so far, was this perfect common carp. Keep an eye on Stuart’s blog page

for the full session report coming shortly along with other carp related tales.
