9 year old Josef, youngest angler to land a 40lb+ Carp at Genets!

Josef’s 45lb 8oz PB.

Josef Tubby, age 9, on his first fishing trip to France has become the youngest angler to bank a carp over the 40lb mark here at Genets.

Fishing with his own 2 rods during the daytime, he was very happy this afternoon when he landed a 24lb 8oz Common, his first PB. He could hardly believe it when 2 hours later he hooked into a 45lb 8oz Mirror.

Josef, who has been fishing with his Dad since he was 5 years old, played both fish himself & was then helped by Dad Tony to land & weigh them.  With Josef suffering from aching arms Dad held the 45lb 8oz for the photo.

Well done & congratulations young Man.

Just 40 minutes later Josef’s Granddad Michael, on his first trip to France, also banked his own PB of 36lb 4oz. It was big smiles all round the dinner table here this evening.
