Luke Hayes - BIG result on Atlantic Wharf

Welsh big fish angler Luke Hayes has been getting amongst a serious number of carp lately on his current venue - Atlantic Wharf.

About as Far removed from the typical carp lake as possible, it's concrete and architecture belies the seriously good looking carp that lurk within its containing walls.

What the venue lacks in natural charm, the carp more than make up for in looks.

With a productive spring session already well under way on the Cardiff venue it was only a matter of time before one the real big ones found the back of his net.

In the early hours one of his his buzzers signalled another take, unbeknown to Luke he was connected to the largest and most sought after resident - Ebeeneezer at a truly huge 42.14!

Carp as imposing as this are extremely thin on the ground in wales - Truly a dream come true for Luke.
