With brother Lewis (pictured below, right) and their friend Paul Forsyth, the pals managed to land a 20lb plus fish each – at the same time.
Daniel's common carp was the 'tiddler' at 20lb 4oz, Lewis's mirror carp weighed in at 22lb 10oz and Paul took the bragging rights with 24lb 8oz plated mirror carp.
You should have seen the one that got away, of course.
Daniel works as a sports coach at the Alec Reed Academy in Northolt and lives nearby. Farlows Lake is off Ford Lane on the edge of Uxbridge, near Iver.
