The Queen of the Manor

One of the most magnificent carp to ever grace the banks of a UK fishery has to be the mighty Annie, which used to reside in the Essex Manor. The great fish is no longer with us, but we came across this old picture of her when caught by Tommy Monk weighing a whopping 59½lb back in March 2008. We’re sure you’ll agree, it was a truly awesome fish! The Manor still contains some impressive specimens today, including carp to more than 50lb, but none have yet to surpass the legendary Annie.
