Sunset specimen is worth the wait
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.
