Ed Teakle caught the monster from Boscathnoe Reservoir near Penzance – and it’s  a new county record carp for Cornwall, in the far south west of England.

St. Columb-based Ed  fished at 50 yards range into deep silt over a heavily baited spot of Buddha baits UK Shellfish Zen and Urban baits Nutcracker boilies along with corn.

The successful rig was a multi rig included a Deception Angling size 6 SPC hook and their tungsten rig putty.

His catch was one of the weekly winners in the Angler’s Mail magazine’s exclusive Fox Carp Cup competition – netting him brilliant Edges tackle.
