Sun­set spec­i­men is worth the wait

Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

CATCH pic­tures don’t come much bet­ter than this stun­ning im­age of Gary John­son and his huge River Nene bar­bel.

It weighed 14lb 12oz, and was proof that good things come to those who wait. Af­ter steadily bait­ing a weedy gravel run through­out the af­ter­noon, the spe­cial­ist from Nass­ing­ton, Northants, re­sisted the urge to cast out un­til an hour from sun­set.

His ploy paid off as the fish took a John Baker dumb­ell boilie hair-rigged on a size 10 hook.
