Allen Babakhani did absolutely brilliantly to tempt, play and land this 40lb 14oz common carp on just an 8lb leader while fishing Lake Erie in Ontario in his home country of Canada, reports the IGFA. If approved, this catch will become the new men’s 4 kg (8 lb) tippet class world record which currently stands at 15.98-kilograms (35-pounds 4-ounces).
