Wingham Carp Lake has produced its 2nd 50lber in less than 48 hours.  It was a mirror of 53-02 and fell to the rod of Andy Sopp, and follows the 50-11 common caught on Thursday. 

 

Further details to follow.

Two 50lb+ fish from a relatively small water is amazing, in the context of the record fish of Walker and Yates. Thirty years ago, you would have had to spend this weekend erecting barbed wire fences around Wingham to keep the anglers out!

I'm now expecting a rush of applications to go on the waiting list, and so even less time to fish myself!

Pictures of both 50s are on the latest news page of the Wingham web site (link in my signature below).
