If you read my last post you will know that The world record article I wrote got allot of readers. Whilst I was exploring all the different web sites that linked up to my story, as they published the news of the capture to their readers, I noticed a few errors, wrong weights and dates etc, so I just wanted to clarify the current record situation for Mirror and Common.

World Record Mirror Carp 38.4KG (84lb 8oz)

Gary Hagues - Fishing the Rainbow Lake in France landed a world record mirror carp of 87lb 2oz to beat the previous record by Pete Fitzsimmons (84lb 8 oz) which had stood for just three weeks.
This was a repeat capture for Gary as he had caught the fish the year before from the same swim at a weight of 83lb 8oz.
