Angler’s Mail magazine mascot Fabio Carpillow was one of the biggest crowd pullers at highly successful The Big One 2012 show at Farnborough, Hampshire.

Fabio made lots of fans' day!

People from far and wide, plus celebrities themselves, made a beeline to him.

Fabio was ferried from London to the exhibition halls for the weekend, blogging live online during the holiday.

Hundreds of anglers besieged the monster fake common carp, who even tweets on Twitter as @FabioCarpillow.

And those show visitors lucky enough to have their photographs taken by a member of the Mail team, have appeared as “cover stars” in a special photos gallery on the Angler’s Mail Facebook page.
