Not a British fish, but one thinks is well worth reporting is this near 70lb grass carp that turned up on Facebook this week.

The 67lb 7oz beauty sets a new Russian record, and was landed by Andrey Pozdnyakov, who comes from Moscow and had to take to a boat in order to land the fish.

Andrey was fishing the Udomelsky are and tempted the brute, which is still nearly 20lb off the world record, with a strawberry flavoured pop-up.
