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.
