New bar­bel best from River Nidd

Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

MICHELLE Thomp­son has broked the of­fi­cial River Nidd bar­bel record with the cap­ture of this 12lb 2oz spec­i­men.

The an­gler from Hal­i­fax, West Yorks, was fish­ing with her part­ner David Dolecki on a Brad­ford No1 AA-run stretch of the wa­ter­way when the mon­ster fish took a lik­ing to her large chunk of ba­con grill hook­bait.

The fish beats the pre­vi­ous of­fi­cial record for the wa­ter­way, which has stood at 11lb 10oz since 2007.
