AARON COPP bagged one of the most amazing trios of carp when he nabbed specimens of three different strains for nearly 150 lb from top venue, Fryerning.

Fishing Essex’s prolific Fryerning Fisheries, local Aaron nabbed a PB common of 51 lb 15 oz before matting a stunning Leather of 48 lb 5 oz and a ‘zip linear’ of 48 lb 5 oz.

All fell to 18 mm Mainline Cell bottom baits fished over a kilo freebies.

Fishery manager Charlie Knowles said: “It was an amazing catch. The leather with plenty of grub going in it will be back over the magical 50 lb very soon.”

Fryerning Fisheries is  situated just 10 minutes from Junction 28 of M25 and is the home to some of the finest carp fishing lakes in the country.

The three waters sit on a beautiful 200-acre country estate, and they are all heavily stocked with stunning home-reared Leney Redmire carp.

The venue also has the ‘carp god’, which was revealed by Angler’s Mail when it was installed at the waterside. Some anglers reckon it’s brought them luck!
