EDWARD SWAIN recorded his first grass carp in real style when he caught one of the biggest in the country.

This giant 40 lb 2 oz grass carp fell on Edward’s debut session to day ticket Strawberry Fields in Kent.

The 30-year-old scaffolding inspector from Preston, Lancashire, fed 12 kg of Sticky Bait Krill boilies in the three-day trip and added a 26 lb mirror carp.

His catch was featured on the hallowed Fish of the Week page of Angler’s Mail magazine, also winning him £100 of top tackle from Korum via the magazine’s Korum Specimen Cup.

Other specimens in the Kent wonder water where Edward visited include the biggest known living common carp, which was recently caught at 60 lb 4 oz.
