TEN-year-old Oliver Maslen had a dream first-ever carp fish­ing trip when he landed this chunky 22lb mir­ror.

Fish­ing an Es­sex farm lake with his fa­ther David, he man­aged to land the lump of a fish all on his own. His dad told An­gling Times: “Not only did he land the big carp sin­gle-handed but he out­fished five sea­soned fam­ily an­glers. He’s well and truly hooked, and now he wants a big­ger one.”

Oliver tempted the crack­ing fish on a piece of hair-rigged Peperami straight from his lunch box. This was pre­sented on an in-line rig along­side a PVA bag of pel­lets. Top an­gling!
