THE colossal record carp, the Parrot, has been caught for a second time at a 'below weight' 64 lb 14 oz after hitting the national headlines months ago when she was caught at a record 68 lb 1 oz to Dean Fletcher.
Latest captor Matt Jackson tempted the massive mirror carp at the still incredible mark using a CC Moore Pacific Tuna boilie.
Salisbury, Wiltshire-based Matt thought he was in with a good chance of the Parrot as most of the other big fish in the water – Wasing Estate’s Cranwells in Berkshire – had been landed in the previous ten days.
Meanwhile Dean Fletcher entered the official British record books – finally – for the same carp at 68 lb 1 oz. He caught The Parrot from Berkshire’s Wasing Estate, Berkshire back in January.
