The most-coveted fish in the Carp Lake has just come out after 2 years at 49-06.  It was caught close in by Rob Burrage who just 3 weeks ago beat the Wingham record with a 54-12.

 

It looks as though Wingham could well hold 3 English 50s by next Spring!

That is a truly stunning fish. That dark back is beautiful and what a rudder! We had a fully scaled in a lake I fished for many years that was a beauty. I never did catch it for myself. Congratulations.

Steve,

 

Does this fish have a recorded lineage with EA?

 

(or for that matter, your  personal records)

The EA don't keep records like that. However I've details of all the stockings plus pics of this fish as it grew up over the years from its stocking as a 3 year old. It's got a sibling that has a very similar scale pattern that hasn't been caught for quite a few years, that weighed a few pounds less.

In fact there's several pics on the latest news page on the Wingham web site, including one from 2001. See http://www.anglersne...s/wingnews.htm. The weight's not shown but I could look it up when I've more time - I'm very busy dealing with membership renewals now.
