Mark has been fishing for carp since the age of 13! Much of those early years were spent fishing with his schoolmate Ali Hamidi and they remain good friends to this day.
He has waited for many years for his first 50 and we are very happy a Puyravaud carp obliged to give him that special moment! His first week at Puyravaud has been a family occasion with everyone joining in and watching Mark land over 20 beautiful carp.
However, his first 50 arrived on Thursday morning and was caught during the morning when all three rods went off at once. Mark carefully caught and landed two mid 20’s and finally brought in the bigger fish for the much anticipated weigh in. This beautiful mirror weighed in at 53lbs 1oz and looked an absolute picture. This fish, which previously had not been named is now called Eloise, after Mark’s intrepid helper!
Very pleased Mark was able to enjoy the moment with 3 generations of his family. Just what Puyravaud is all about!
Well done Mark!
