This carp was originally thought to be one of the oft seen butlittle caught big ‘originals’ which inhabit the water but comparisonof photographs has shown that it is, in fact, the fish known as theThorpe Park Common which was caught last season at 32lb.
This stunning looking fish has now put on over 10lb since itsintroduction to the water and looks set to top 40lb before the end ofthis season.Terrific Head of Big Bream
