JEFF ROWLAND caught the biggest golden orfe for a couple of years with this 7 lb 9 oz beast from the Main Carp Lake at Devon’s Anglers Paradise.


The 57-year-old civil servant from West Yorkshire legered a DNA boilie at the venue which has produced fish over the 8 lb 5 oz official British record.

Fishery spokesperson Zenia Gregorek said: “We have had bigger orfe come out in the past.

“The biggest ever to date was just over 9 lb which is now in a glass case in our bar as sadly went to heaven!

“But this is the biggest we’ve had come out recently.”
