ANGLER’S Mail can this week announce that major changes are afoot in our Carp Cup competition.

Sponsors Dynamite Baits’ stable mates Advanced Carp Equipment will take over the reigns by backing our annual super-popular big carp competition.

The move came immediately after the presentation of Dynamite’s mega £2,500 cheque and huge trophy to 2010/11 winner Duncan Arrandale.

Duncan gets his name etched in history on the Mail’s famous silver bowl trophy alongside some of the biggest names to have graced the carp fishing world.

Duncan’s fine run of 30s topped by a stunning 46 lb common carp from the Carp Society’s Farriers Lake, Gloucestershire, caught the judges’ eyes especially as he juggles carping with work commitments and six-year-old twins. A worthy winner – and cover star of the Angler’s Mail issue (right).

Angler's Mail now includes the ACE Carp Cup!
