EASTENDERS TV star and our current front cover star, Scott Maslen, is as mad keen on his carp fishing as they come. He now reckons he’s found the best place in the world to fish for them!

Scott (left) spent a week with former British record holder Simon Bater in Gran Canaria.

He sought it out for something different, needing a break offering sun, peace and quality carping, high up in the mountains at 150-acre Lake Chira, with Canary Island Carp Fishing Tours.

Former tackle shop worker Scott and Simon got off to a scorching start with the actor’s first fish being a new PB of 35 lb!
