222lb SI­AMESE CARP!

Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

THIS in­cred­i­ble pic­ture shows one of the world’s big­gest Si­amese carp – snared on the Method feeder.

It was caught by Tim Webb, the owner of the award-win­ning Palm Tree La­goon in Thai­land.

The spec­i­men weighed 222lb and smashed his pre­vi­ous best for the species of 180lb.

He was bat­tling the fish for an hour-and-a-half be­fore it was brought un­der con­trol with a 50lb braided hook­link and a size 1 hook. “This is, by far, the big­gest Si­amese carp I’ve ever heard of, let alone seen,” Tim told An­gling Times.

“I caught it from an undis­closed stillwater, but I bought the fish and in the photo I am about to stock it into Palm Tree La­goon. Now any­one can come and try to catch this enor­mous spec­i­men,” he added.
