IN AN extraordinary week for monster carp, the biggest reported fish of the year has been landed by Dave Curtis at a whopping 58 lb.

The Hinders field tester smashed his personal best by 12 lb with the giant in a great five-carp catch while trialling their new Tangberry frozen boilies for the first time.

The 55-year-old from Highworth, Wiltshire, added carp of 36 lb, 34 lb, 28 lb 8 oz and 23 lb 4 oz in the two-night session.

And two brothers also shared an 101 lb carp brace in a 48 hour trip – and nabbed further beauties to boot.

And our carp gallery in the printed magazine is littered with 40-pounders.
