DUNCAN ARRANDALE has put himself in the frame for the overall Dynamite Carp Cup with his first 40-pounder in the shape of this stunning 46 lb common.

The 37-year-old has been ultra consistent this past season on his favourite Farriers Lake run by the Carp Society and this stunning fish puts him in with a chance for the £2,500 top prize that is decided in June.

Wychwood and Mistral Baits consultant Duncan from Evesham, Worcestershire, has been a Dynamite monthly winner already and is now chuffed with his first UK 40 that is the biggest fish in the lake.
