Alarm call for Dove bar­bel

Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

MANY rivers are low and clear, but big bar­bel like this 12lb 8oz fish are still there for the tak­ing.

This fine ex­am­ple was landed by Lone An­gler-backed rod Andy Degville on the banks of the River Dove at 5.30am.

It was the per­fect alarm call for the spe­cial­ist from Tam­worth, Stafford­shire, who used a Lone An­gler Ocean Pride 14mm dumb­ell on a size 10 hook at­tached to a 12lb fluoro­car­bon hook­link and a 15lb main­line.
