Whilst the nation slept overnight, Kieran Duff was creating UK carp-fishing history at Waterside Fishery in Buckinghamshire, landing the largest common carp ever recorded on these shores.
Residing in the venue’s Kingfisher Lake, the Big Common as it is commonly known is no stranger to the circuit, having grown gradually in size over the years to be regarded as the largest open-access common in the UK.
However, after going uncaught for the past nine months, the fish has slowly put on weight further still, until giving itself up to DNA team member and Waterside bailiff, Kieran, at an incredible 66lb 8oz, making it the largest UK common ever landed!
We’ll have further details about the capture to follow, but in the meantime, let’s just appreciate this incredible fish and an immense achievement for both Kieran and Waterside Fishery.
Well done, guys!
