NO.1 chart star Dappy proved he’s as good on the bank as in the music studio by landing this personal best 36 lb mirror carp during a productive trip to Gran Canaria with Canary Carp Crew.

N-Dubz star Dappy – famed for his love of hats – hit the top of the charts with the aptly named Number 1 in a collaboration with Tinchy Stryder

And the hip hop band have a platinum selling album to their credit, eight Top 40 singles and are MOBO winners for best newcomers, best UK act, best album and best song. But Dappy is never happier than when he’s fishing.

Pal and fellow angler Martin Tuvey told the Mail: ‘There’s four of us who are keen anglers – Dappy, band mate Tulisa’s father Steve, me and “camera man George” and  I just arrange trips when Dappy’s got time off from his work

‘He loves his fishing and grew up fishing with his father and uncle on Hampstead Heath in London.

‘We’d like to say a big thanks to Keith and the Canary Carp Crew and Rob Hales. We are now on the Boat Pool Weston Park in -2 conditions – if that ain’t commitment I don’t know what is!
