Angling Times (UK) - - 50 GREATEST CATCHES -

43

IT WAS hardly an event that was un­ex­pected at the time, but when Gary Bayes landed Bri­tain’s first 60lb-plus carp in Septem­ber 2002, it was still a land­mark in the most pop­u­lar arm of coarse fish­ing.

The fish, which was known as Two-Tone, was taken on a boilie dur­ing a ses­sion at Con­ning­brook Lake in Kent. It would go on to hold the Bri­tish record un­til Jan­uary 2016.
