Huge Trent bar­bel in 3am alarm call

Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

THIS pris­tine bar­bel shows why the River Trent is widely re­garded as one of the UK’s finest venues for the species.

It weighed 16lb 15oz, and was caught by East York­shire rod Colin Hebb.

He kicked his ses­sion off with a nine-pounder, but then things went quiet. Af­ter hours of in­ac­tiv­ity his rod arched over again at 3am, and af­ter an arm-aching bat­tle his prize was soon in the net.

A crab and cray­fish-flavoured boilie was the win­ning hook­bait for Colin.
