34lb common carp is the reward for sitting in the baking sun…

34lb Common Carp from Watersmeet in France

After sitting in the baking sun all afternoon here at Watersmeet Mick was finally rewarded by a take right under the trees on the far bank.  I was up at the house getting dinner ready when suddenly he was shouting over the walkie-talkie.

I ran down to swim 1 where after a great tussle we landed a 34lb Common which was in mint condition. Unfortunatley Mick’s arthritis is so bad now he did not have the strenth to pick the fish up, so we elected to take some photo’s while the fish was on the unhooking mat.
