THIS mighty mirror carp known as Single Scale weighed in at a hefty 57 lb 12 oz and could soon be yours.

The captor, known only as ‘Joe’, matted the big ‘un from Ashmead Fishery, near Yeovil, Somerset, which will open its doors with a selection process. Weekly tickets will cost £300.

Fishery boss Mark Walsingham said: “We start taking bookings from March with fishing commencing from May.

“We are limiting it to seven anglers per week with a weekend break to give the fish a breather and to allow for general fishery maintenance work.

“The fishery isn’t just about the size of the fish as we also aim to offer a great area of conservation.
