Huge Trent bar­bel is ‘all down to dad’

Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

LIAM Roe had his fa­ther to thank for the cap­ture of this per­son­albest 14lb 10oz bar­bel.

The Don­caster rod tempted the spec­i­men on a crab-flavoured boilie fished over a bed of hemp just two rodlengths out.

How­ever, Liam only de­cided to visit the spot on the tidal River Trent af­ter re­ceiv­ing ad­vice from his dad about where to fish. He said: “Un­for­tu­nately my old man can’t get out on the bank these days due to a long-term ill­ness, but he tells me where to fish and I’m just so glad I can re­ward his ad­vice with this su­perb bar­bel.”
