The Fat Lady is a 30-year-old mirror carp that weighed 61 pounds, 6 ounces. An average mirror carp weighs about 10 pounds. Through the years she became a legend among British anglers, and to some, landing The Fat Lady became an obsession.
Simon Giblin, 35, a marine engineer, spent seven years visiting the Fat Lady's lake before he finally caught her two years ago. He fished the lake about 900 times.
