These fish pictured were part of a 78 fish haul caught in early October in France 2009. I was lucky to be fishing there when they decided to have a good feed.  I had a total of 38 Carp over 30lb, 8 of those came in one nights hectic hauling and I also managed to catch 12 forties on that trip to 47lb a truly superb weeks fishing.
