Angler lands record 68lb catch, ending a 10-year mission

Greengrocer Dean, 53, caught the giant mirror carp – nicknamed because of its beak-like mouth – after fishing for three years at Cranwells Lake on the Wasing Estate near Newbury, Berks. 

He had waited seven years to get a licence to fish the waters where The Parrot has lured countless anglers. 

Dean, from Caversham, Berks, spent 30 minutes reeling in the monster, even wading into the water when it darted behind a sunken tree.
