THE end to 2015 has seen some of Britain’s heftiest big carp on the munch and at high weights - the pick of the crop last week was a stunning 57 lb 10 oz common to Paul Viner. And there's a BIGGER one in the latest bumper Angler's Mail magazine!

Paul matted the hefty fish currently alive at RH Fisheries’ The Avenue with the superb common called Tarka.

It is just reward for Paul who has had a brilliant year at the 10.2 acre Shropshire syndicate water.

The maintenance supervisor from Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands, explained: ‘I’ve just landed the final piece of the jigsaw to complete the grand slam of the Avenue’s big four this year, and my fourth English 50-plus fish this season. Buzzing.”
