THE carp angling community were in shock this week when the World common carp record was smashed out of sight by an unexpected 100 lb 8 oz monster to English angler Colin Smith.

Colin was fishing top French venue Etang La Saussaie when he tempted the monster that had previously peaked at 88 lb two years ago when Korda’s Damian Clarke netted her.
