Ter­rific Thames in top bar­bel form

Anglers Mail - - Front Page -

JACK HAR­VEY wasn’t com­plain­ing when his only fish of a 24-hour trip to a free stretch of the lower River Thames was this PB 14 lb 8 oz bar­bel.

The dec­o­ra­tor, from West London, leg­ered an 18 mm Main­line Cell wafter on a hair rig tight to an is­land mar­gin.

Fur­ther up­stream, Joshua Flint chipped in with a 14 lb bar­bel from the Thames at Mar­low, Buck­ing­hamshire.

The lo­cal 25-year-old con­ser­va­tory fit­ter of­fered a glugged Sonubaits Ooz­ing Spicy Sausage pel­let over hemp and Spam, with a freerun­ning lead.

And ser­vice en­gi­neer Rob Waters tempted this 13 lb 12 oz bar­bel from the Lower Thames on a two-hour evening trip.

The 44-year-old quiv­er­tipped punched luncheon meat with a small PVA bag of free of­fer­ings on a sim­ple run­ning leger rig.
