Young carp specialist Lewis Hagland caused one of the shocks of the summer with a 5 lb 14 oz perch (pix below, with an even better image and full story in our mag).

RISING young carp ace Lewis Hagland stars in this week’s Angler’s Mail magazine with a monster 5 lb 14 oz perch.

The field-tester for CC Moore tells his story in our pages giving further credence to suggestions that the 6 lb 3 oz British perch record could call anywhere – to any method!

And it could even happen now, in summer, rather than the winter and early spring period when fish are at their heaviest.

Here are a couple of alternative photos of Lewis’s catch, plus a shot of a 28 lb mirror carp, the species he normally targets.
