    I love it when this comes back round
    On the 10th of June 1999 i caught a 30lb 7oz common carp at brookside fishery near Warrington. At the time the angling press said it was the biggest ever UK carp on a pole. This was my only bite of the match and got me second place. Unfortunately there were no cameras about at the time (though 1 bloke did say he'd found one in his car later )
