ANGLER’S MAIL correspondent Bill Rushmer has rocked the British crucian carp record with a 4 lb 6 oz giant from a day ticket water. It is the best ever from that lake and just 3 oz off the all-time UK high.

‘I feel this crucian was poetic justice as Virginia and I were the first journalists on the venue and others followed. Yes, there is a God!’ said Bill.

Bill’s full big catch picture and full details on where and exactly how he caught it are in this week’s Angler’s Mail magazine (cover date June 8, with free line).
