Mark Jowers recently contacted us to let us know he caught ‘Willow’ at 30lb 4oz at 3 in the morning on the 6 April 2009. The weight is unverified as Mark was unable to wake his friend fishing on another part of the lake. This is Marks first year with Maldon Angling Society and his first 30lb carp so good news for Mark all round and well done!

Neil Dunn’s photos of ‘Willow’


Neil’s long awaited photos of his 37lb 9oz Mirror have arrived and we can now confirm that it is Willow appearing at her heaviest ever weight. Neil asked another angler fishing at Totham Pit to independently verify the weight, which he did, and we present photos of both sides of this tremendous fish for you to make up your own minds.
