I dunno - it took him an hour to land it. I suppose one consolation is that its not trailing his line around. Hotty, if you are fishing with boilies there is a good chance a carp will pick up your bait and 2lb line is just far too light - especially with 30's in the water.

....Here's to swimming with bow-legged women....

Skillz there to get a 32lb Carp in on 2lb line i'd struggle to get that in on 6/8 lb line never mind 2 my hat goes of to you.

 

As all ready people have already said,it will be wise to step your line up to at least 6lb preferably 8/10 or higher.

Any pictures?

Not being funny but you have more chance of any size carp taking a single maggot on a size 20 hook with 1lb hooklength as it looks a tad more natural than a hair rig mounted boilie.
