Three French carp, in­clud­ing lake best, go 214lb in to­tal J

Angling Times (UK) - - SOUTH -

UST three fish gave Terry Clay­ton a stag­ger­ing com­bined weight of 214lb in 30 hours at a French hol­i­day venue.

The West Sus­sex tai­lor got the mea­sure of the stock at Etang Du Bois and banked com­mons of 82lb, 79lb 14oz and 53lb in an in­cred­i­ble spell.

The 51-year-old told Angling Times: “It was amaz­ing, ab­so­lutely amaz­ing – the per­fect ses­sion. The 79lb 14oz one was my favourite fish, it was just stun­ning and is known as the Miss­ing Fish as it hasn’t been caught for nearly four years.

“For it to go un­caught for so long when the lake is fished ev­ery day is in­cred­i­ble.”

The largest fish, the venue’s big­gest, smashed Terry’s pre­vi­ous per­sonal best of 56lb 12oz and has re­cently been named JP in hon­our of the late Jan Porter.
