STEVE BARTON completed the perfect set of 40 lb carp when he matted this 43 lb 12 oz common to finish the trio of mirrors and leathers.

London-based Steve fished the Bluebell complex in Northamptonshire and caught the fish almost straight away after spotting a load of fish in one corner and lowered a white pop-up into a margin spot.
