WHERE else can this award go but to the largest carp ever landed in the UK? It cre­ated a huge storm of con­tro­versy, but cap­tor Tom Do­herty han­dled him­self im­pec­ca­bly and what­ever you think of its va­lid­ity as a record, the fish is an ab­so­lute gi­ant. Tom caught the 69lb 13oz mir­ror, known as Big Rig, from the Av­enue in Shropshire to smash his 44lb per­sonal best. The fish had been nur­tured by fish­ery boss Rob Hales since 2013, when it weighed 39lb. “The sight of those huge shoul­ders com­ing over the net is some­thing I will never for­get,” said Tom.
