222lb SIAMESE CARP!
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.
