JOHN MOTT is hav­ing the sea­son of his life, and notched up his big­gest bar­bel of the sea­son, at 16 lb 2 oz, in an­other amaz­ing overnighter.

The 44-year-old Trent an­gler added an­other eight dou­bles on his favourite river, with oth­ers of 10 lb 2 oz, 10 lb 3 oz, 10 lb 15 oz, 11 lb 2 oz, 12 lb 4 oz, 12 lb 13 oz, 13 lb 5 oz and 14 lb 6 oz.

John, a main­te­nance en­gi­neer from Lin­colnshire, said: “I did a quick overnighter on the Tidal and didn’t ex­pect the end re­sult.

“It was my ninth night this sea­son and re­sulted in my big­gest bar­bel this sea­son. I had nine bar­bel, all dou­ble­fig­ures, so it must mean nine is my lucky num­ber.

“They all fell to 18 mm test boilies from Dave Mallin, size 4 hook, 20 lb coated braid hook link, 7 oz lead and 25 lb braid main line,” he added.
