CLIVE WILLIAMS showed great angling skill to catch a record carp brace from historic Savay Lake in Buckinghamshire with a mirror of 43 lb 15 oz and 47 lb 4 oz common (pictured).

The long-time syndicate member set personal bests with both fish using intimate stalking tactics right in the edge on consecutive days.

Clive, 56, who has an in-depth book called Sussex Carping due out in November, explained: ‘Both fish were stalked in the margin just a half yard from the bank.

‘I saw both fish pick up my bait which was two half boilies fished back-to-back.’
