The British love their carp.
What we in the U.S. consider ugly mudsuckers, the British revere.
Carp are the fish of British anglers’ dreams. And most of the big dreams come with a name.
Such was the case with Brian Humphries who landed what is being hailed as one of the largest carp ever caught in the United Kingdom. The 48-year-old angler landed a 59-pound 14-ounce English Carp known in Berkshire (Brian won’t reveal where exactly) as “The Parrot” on August 12.
