The huge monster was caught by Thai fisherman Kik (pictured right). He was left to estimate that the Siamese giant carp weighed 256lb or 18st - 36lb more than his scales could bear.

The world record for any member of the carp family, which includes goldfish, is 88lb.

Kik's boss, Jean-Francois Helias, who runs fishing tours in Thailand, said: "He hooked the catch of a lifetime that some anglers would sell their soul to the devil for.

"It is the biggest carp ever caught on rod and line and kept slapping people with its tail." Link
